Pockets, a hood, A-line shaping, top-down construction, and generous length are all elements we love in a cozy fall cardigan. Throw in colorful Fair Isle patterns using traditional wool yarn with a steek and you have both a knitter-friendly project and a fall wardrobe staple. The Prairie Wind Cardigan is worked in the round from the top down, and the hood is worked from the bottom up in the round; both are steeked open in finishing.
