I’ve uploaded the Port Townsend Swing Cardi on Ravelry. This lightweight cardigan features a crewneck, three-quarter-length set-in sleeves, folded hems, and an A-line silhouette. It’s an ideal layer that spans multiple seasons. The swing shape is achieved by mirrored increases worked along most of the center back.
The sweater is worked from the top down following the general template for set-in sleeve construction in The Knitter’s Handy Book of Top-Down Sweaters.
The brushed yarn, Colinton Australia Lace Blends, is a luxurious blend of 80% fine mohair and 20% silk that is hand-dyed in Australia and exclusively distributed in the U.S. by The Bazaar Girls Yarn Emporium in Port Townsend, Washington.
The pattern is provided in nine sizes ranging from 34″ (86.5 cm) to 60 3/4″ (154.5 cm) bust circumference.

Looks beautiful! I only own one of your sock books but am tempted to get the Knitters Handy book of Top Down Sweaters. They are more modern in that book than previous, right? I think I could be called an ‘intermediate knitter’, so I assume I could make this pretty new sweater?
Is there someplace other than ravelry to buy this pattern? I would be willing to pau the PayPal fees. I don’t do Ravelry.
Certainly! You can email me directly and I can send the pdf to you and invoice you through PayPal.
