Audrey Cardigan knitting pattern by Jane Richmond

This design has been a labour of love. I have been dying to share it with you since I bound off and now, after changing the design concept twice (to better display the yarn), one heart stopping yarn shortage (thank you Felicia for saving the day), one name change (thank you Amy and then Shannon :), two photo shoots (one indoor, one outdoor ~ thanks luv), and finally... I can.

Meet Audrey, a garter stitch cardigan knit from the top down. She has a slip stitch ribbing between the raglan increases and along the sides of the body that creates a really flattering false seam.

I seem to be on a garter stitch kick as of late and can you blame me? It really compliments the tonality of hand dyed yarns and when you use SweetGeorgia as much as I do you don't want anything to take away from the brilliantly rich colours that Felicia hand dyes.

I hope you like her :)
