Our Ridgeline Wrap Cardigan taps into the drama of nature itself: the ebbs and flows, the bends and curves. Great for beginners on a quest for their first dramatic achievement and also for more experienced knitters who are always up for beauty, this pattern is perfectly straightforward. You'll knit it bottom up in 2×2 rib, then pick up the set-in sleeves and knit them in the round, starting with some short-row shoulder shaping. The sweeping shawl collar grows right out of the body, and stockinette sleeves envelop the wearer’s arms without constricting them... Simple! And what better yarn to create such natural beauty than our Flax Down, a super soft and cozy combination of baby alpaca, extra fine merino, and linen.
