Winter wheat: an asymmetrical cardigan with large textured stripes and a crazy construction in fingering weight…

Winter wheat is worked top down and sideways at the same time. The left front and the collar are worked in one piece and the top stripes wrap around the neck as a shawl. The left front falls straight and the right front falls more fluidly.

The sleeves are also worked top down with at the right side the same large stripes. The left sleeve is finished with some smaller stripes at the bottom.

The cardigan can be closed with a shawl pin or an attached I-cord with a few afterthought buttonholes can be added in the end.

Even buttoned up wrongly it looks kinda cute
