Marmor Cardigan – pattern by Regina Moessmer

I’m always looking for a classic cardigan, and I came across this one by Regina Moessmer on Fringe Association. When it comes to a simple design, it’s all about details and having an even tension; I like the exposed seams and rib borders of this cardigan. When making a garment in garter stitch, you have to remember that it can stretch in length, so the best fiber to use is a firm wool, and not a heavy cotton or bamboo, or the garment will lose its shape and drape too much. I once made the mistake of making a structured cardigan with pleats in bamboo, and it draped so much that I couldn’t wear it. This is a perfect pattern for the simplest of knit patterns – garter stitch.
