Laura Aylor's Robie Street is a
lightweight cardigan knit in soothing stockinette with garter rib trim and
cozy pockets. Short sleeves make it perfect for layering over a tank or a
long-sleeved turtleneck, making it a great transitional piece. Sample calls
for one button with a snap underneath but you can use as many buttons as you
like. For best results, use a yarn with a nice drape - merino with silk
and/or cashmere or superwash merinos are good choices.
Construction is the same basic simplified version of
Barbara Walker’s top-down seamless simultaneous set-in sleeve construction
used in Aylor's Sun Rose but with short-rows to shape the
shoulder slopes. No seaming - not even for the pockets!
