This cardigan evolved after I had published my “Get the Picture" hat featuring the same stitch, resulting in a lot of inquiries for sweaters from people who were fond of the stitch pattern (as far as I remember, I think I must have found this stitch pattern on one of those free-stitch-pattern-websites, but I am not 100% sure any more). Subsequently, I decided to make one for myself to see how this would work out.
I wanted it to be a simple, classic open cardigan with raglan sleeves and pockets hidden within the hem - something comfortable and wearable made from beautiful yarn, the kind of sweater you can slip into when you go for a walk in the park with your kids - but at the same time, unique enough so you won’t be lost in the crowd if the kids come looking for you.
Petrichor was designed in collaboration with Julie Asselin Yarn.
