Valley Yarns Gardenia adds rich texture and integrated cables to a classic drop-shoulder cardigan silhouette and creates a go-to layer with year-round appeal. Easily topping anything from tanks to buttondowns or long sleeved tees, this cardigan will add vibrant color and coverage to outfits from work wear to casual weekend outfits. Gardenia is knit flat in pieces from the bottom up with a three-needle bind-off joining the shoulders and seams at the sides to lend structure. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole and worked in the round down to the cuffs. Granville is a smooth Pima cotton yarn that has a touch of Merino wool blended in that gives it a bit of extra drape, memory, and warmth. Cable rib pattern is both charted and written out.
