Yarn Harrisville Designs Highland (100% wool; 200 yd [183 m]/3½ oz [100 g]): #23 magenta, 5 (5, 5, 6, 6, 7, 8) skeins.

Needles Sizes 6 (4 mm) and 7 (4.5 mm): 32" circular (cir) and set of double-pointed (dpn). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions Markers (m); removable m; stitch holders; tapestry needle; six 1" buttons.

Gauge 15 sts and 22 rows = 4" in St st on larger needle; 17 sts and 22 rnds = 4" in Eyelet patt on larger needle.

This cardigan has extra ease and length for a comfortable, relaxed fit. At the same time, an eyelet-stitch pattern on the sleeves adds elegance and visual interest. In an airy worsted-weight wool, the fabric has rustic appeal made modern by a bright hue.
