The inspiration for Piper’s Journey came when I needed a knitting project for travel. I wanted something simple that would require minimal attention. A bonus feature of this shawl is that an exact stitch count is not necessary when starting the lace border. It is easy to adjust the size of the shawl. Allow a little over one third of the total yardage for the border.
This boxy-fit women’s cardigan hoodie features a large cable panel on the back, with matching cables down the front openings and the hood, as well as on the raglan sleeves. The body is knit from the bottom hem up to the armholes, where the sleeves are then joined and the remainder of the cardigan, including the hood are worked in one piece to the top. It is finished with a zippered closure for a casual, sporty look.
