Stonecutters Cardigan

A riff on the traditional, a cabled cardigan inspired by Vermont granite and by the late 19th/early 20th century stone carvings done by the Craftsmen in Central Vermont (more on that very soon!).

The cardigan is hip length with a fitted saddle shoulders, waist shaping and generously overlapped fronts for that perfect mix of tailored fit and a laid back, comfortable style.

Finished Measurements

Total circumference is 39 ½, 41 ½, 43 ½, 45 ½,48 ½, 50 ½, 52 ½” around, closed.

To fit about a 34/35, 36/37, 38/39, 40/41, 43/44, 45/46, 47/48” bust.
Sample measures 34/35” and is worn (by me) with 0 ease.

Berroco Blackstone Tweed
65% wool, 25% mohair, 10% angora; 130yd/119m per 50g skein Ancient Mariner 10, 11, 11, 12, 12, 13, 13 skeins

    This cardigan is so beautiful! I’m so looking forward to knitting it! I’m also looking forward to reading your post about Vermont granite. I lived in Peacham Vermont for a while and loved making trips to the hope cemetery in Barre. I’d love to know more about the history of the craft and about the amazing lives of the granite workers.
