Wrap yourself in the wonderful feeling of this easy, sideways-knit boxy cardigan, worked in stretchy garter stitch with short row yoke shaping. Elysium is knit in one piece from left front around the body to right front; it requires no seaming and can be worn right off the needles. Three turning points in the short row shaping delineate body, yoke and collar, creating a shapely fit around the upper body. The stretchy garter stitch and open style make it suitable for many shapes and sizes; written in ten sizes, Elysium may be further customized in length or circumference.
Techniques & Skills Used: knit, short rows.
Size: 31.5 (33.5, 35.75, 38, 40, 42, 44, 46.25, 48.5, 50.5)” bust, with fronts closed. This boxy cardigan has shaping only at the yoke; for a good fit, choose a finished size based on upper bust measurement, or with no ease/some negative ease at the bust. Elysium should be fitted at the yoke, stretch slightly over the bust, and then skim the lower torso.
