Cityscape juxtaposes traditional circular yoke shaping with an unexpected motif! A city skyline sits around the upper yoke, worked stranded-style in two colors of a woolly, semi-solid Blue Faced Leicester yarn. To make the colorwork easier to knit, the cardigan is knit seamlessly in the round and steeked open at the front.
Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts BFL Sport (661 yds / 604 m per 8 oz / 226 g skein; 100% Blue Face Leicester Wool)
Needles & Notions: Size 4 US / 3.5 mm circular needle, 32” /
80 cm (or longer for larger sizes)
Gauge: 24 sts and 32 rnds = 4” / 10 cm in Stockinette stitch in the round
Construction Notes: The cardigan is knit in the round from the bottom up, beginning with an I-Cord Cast On and continuing with additional stitches cast on for the steek at the center front. The sleeves are knit in the round to the underarm and joined with the body for the colorwork yoke, which is worked in the round from a chart. Once the body is complete, the front steek is secured and cut open, and the buttonbands picked up from the front edges.
