Pattern of the Week: Clear Creek Cardigan

Curl up with the Clear Creek Cardigan. This standout modern classic showcases all the best, most satisfying knitting techniques in one dazzling piece. Interesting cables and attention to detail in the finishing work set this long, envy-inducing knit apart from the rest. The clever double-layered front bands are worked at the same time as the cabled fronts.
