Brise-Soleil Cardigan

The preview for the Fall 2010 issue of Knitscene magazine is out!  Go check it out.  I will wait.  There is lots of neat stuff to contemplate making…

Of course, the real reason I am excited about the issue is that I have a design in it.  The Brise-Soleil Cardigan.  Love this sweater.  🙂  Really love the Classic Elite Portland Tweed it is knit up with!  The sweater incorporates a simple lace motif in the body, but the sleeves are solid stockinette stitch, so it is still cozy and warm.

One thing you can’t really tell from the pictures is that the front opening is asymmetric.

It is meant to fit slightly oversized to be comfortable with most any outfit.

The magazine should be hitting newsstands at the end of July.

    Needing a little help with this one. My shoulder decreases have me at 58 stitches. According to gauge, that’s just about 10″ across. I am a 38 bust easily, and that’s 19″ across. How is it that the top is 10″? In the photo, it shows the upper back draped slightly over her shoulders. It is incredibly narrow. Is that correct?
