how does your garden grow?

with super chunky yarn and great big needles, the modern garden cardigan grows faster than you can say 'sugar snap.' the pattern, another lovely one from designer veera välimäki, is worked from bottom hem to collar all in one piece. sleeves are first worked separately and then added along to the body. the shaping of the sweater comes from the curved lines of the leaves.

no increasing or decreasing. no seams. no sweat. a quick and happy knit that will call fibre space home for a while. it was knit as a shop sample to show off some spectacular yarn. mirasol ushya is perfect for this project and all sorts of other winter accessories. it is a big and bulky yarn that somehow manages to stay lightweight and still be warm.
