Notes:
Constructed in pieces from the bottom up with set-in sleeves for stability - definitely an important thing with worn-open cardigans of this style! WATERshed’s lightness and body contribute to an incredibly wearable finished product, and I highly recommend it for this sweater. Vertical darts are used front and back for waist shaping, which makes for both a better fit and easier seaming. The neckline is picked up and worked after seaming. The Left and Right cable charts are 20-row repeats while the Center cable chart is a 24-row repeat. Ensure pattern is kept correct throughout the back. The fronts feature Neck and Armhole Shaping at the same time. Read the sections throughout to understand shaping before beginning.

Fall is hands-down my favorite season, and the Bennington Cardigan is just the kind of cardigan I always reach for during those first chilly fall days. It’s cozy, enveloping, and lusciously complex-looking (while being easy to knit!). Even putting it on just to get the morning paper reminds me of all the hiking, pumpkin- and apple-picking, hot-cider-donut-and-hay-riding days to come.
