Angelus Novus is an easy-to-wear cardigan with an innovative construction, both fun to knit and surprisingly quick. It begins with a garter-tab cast on at the lower back and grows up and around the body. It flatters many body types and can be worn with a casual comfort or as an elegant layer. Worn open, it has the effect of a waterfall front, or can be secured with a beautiful shawl pin or single snap closure.

The sample is worked in our beautiful Blacker Swan DK Wool, which is a thick DK weight, but a worsted or even aran weight yarn would also be great. We recommend as an alternative using some of our Tamar DK or Flocked Off Aran.

To make this gorgeous knitted cardigan you will need the following quantities for the sizes shown:

S, M, L, XL: 9 (11, 12, 14) x 50g balls
