PS770C Jennifer Cardigan
Penny Straker Designs
Yarn: Sport Weight
Sizes: 32 through 44
This design has been consistently popular through the years. There’s something about Jennifer that just charms and pleases women. The Mock Cable decorates the yoke and cuffs giving the knitter the opportunity to become familiar with the pattern stitch before beginning the Raglan decreases which shape the armholes. These decreases steadily break into the Mock Cable pattern. This section of the cardigan requires a working understanding of the stitch. At the beginning of every right-side row, the knitter has to calculate exactly where to resume the all-over Mock Cable.
While smooth, evenly spun yarns enhance the Mock Cables, the pattern is still distinct and attractive in yarns having a little texture. Knit on #5 needles, it is a good project for the intermediate knitter.
