  • This gorgeous cardigan was the hit of the WOOLADDICTS trunk show. Easy to knit, and easy to wear in WOOLADDICTS Air, a core spun merino that's cozy soft and light as a feather. The pattern is worked in one piece to the armholes in a simple attractive rice stitch. Join us every Sunday and be ready to wear it before Thanksgiving. You really have to knit with Air to believe it. 

    When the trunk show arrived and the garments worked in Air were spectacular.  It was absolutely amazing that you could have a trendy bulky sweater that was so light and not bulky.  Crazy right?   But it's true. The No Plain Jane Cardigan, was the garment that really sold me on Air.  It's nice and long - a really flattering length, and it's sleek.  Worked in rice stitch, which is really just a two-row seed stitch, the fabric doesn't curl, so you don't need any and border or trim.  The yarn's unusual construction makes it light as, well, air.  The sample cardigan use 12 skeins, but it weighs almost nothing and still manages to feel really cozy.  Air's fibers take the dye in a way that gives it surprising depth and sophistication.  It's lovely to knit too.
