Chili Pepper is an open-front cardigan featuring a pretty lozenge stitch on its cuffs and fronts. It's a comfortable classic you'll wear for years to come—and it's equally at home in the office or on weekends.
Knit in DK weight yarn (Valley Yarns Northfield, a soft merino/alpaca/silk blend), Chili Pepper is nearly seamless. It's worked in one piece to the armholes, then fronts and back are knit separately. After seaming the shoulders and back neck, the sleeves are worked top down, in the round. A touch of shaping gives the body a swingy, A-line shape.
In addition to lots of great patterns, the fall Knitscene has an article on slipstitch colorwork, tips for getting a good fit, and an interview with Krysten Ritter. Find it at your favorite yarn shop or bookstore or purchase the digital issue directly from Interweave.
