The Hometown Cardigan is a beautiful everyday piece with just the right amount of textured details to make it a relaxing knit and a wardrobe favourite once finished. The cabled front pockets, half-twisted ribbing details on body and sleeves and a reverse stockinette background add that little extra that makes it stand out while still being a very wearable basic. Worked from the top down, this raglan cardigan doesn‘t require a lot of seaming. The buttonbans and pockets are worked last. Body length and sleeve length can be customised to fit you perfectly.

More Information

This cardigan is designed for Blacker Yarns’ Blacker Swan DK, a smooth, worsted-spun blend of Falkland Islands Dohne Merino with a bit of Shetland and Dark Bluefaced Leicester. The small amount of dark fibre adds depth to the dyed and undyed colourways, making the Blacker Swan palette extra special. We highly recommend treating yourself to what is without a doubt one of the most luxurious wool yarns out there (available through blackeryarns.co.uk and selected yarn shops like thewoollythistle.com). The design makes natural wool yarns shine, and would also be an excellent fit with Quince and Co.’s Lark, O-Wool’s O-Wash Worsted, The Fibre Co.’s Cumbria, or Brooklyn Tweed’s Arbor, in case you’re looking for an alternative yarn option.
