Ramona says about her design: 
“The reversible herringbone pattern creates a versatile collar in the Redfern Cardigan. Wear it buttoned up, with the collar styled as a cowl-neck, or unbuttoned, with the collar folding down over the shoulders. Whichever way it’s worn, the stylish doubled buttons on the collar show.”

Malabrigo Yarn Rastita in Knitty, First Fall 2014

A new edition of Knitty is out! It contains a beautiful cropped cardi, called Double Take by Jenice Reid.Double take by Jenise Reid

In the words of the designer:

From the front, a cropped cardi. From the back, a hip length sweater with a neat overlapped yoke. Bet you have to look twice to figure it out!

Interestingly, this sweater does not use any short rows. All that crazy shaping comes from increases and decreases setting the sides on bias! Then, to fill in the low back, the front border is knit out and grafted in.

It’s designed for Malabrigo Rastita, showed in the colourway Dewberry. Instructions come for seven sizes, and you will need between 900 (3 skeins) and 1800 (6 skeins) yards of Rastita, depending on the size you make.
