Welcome autumn with Sedona – a perfect cozy cardigan for the fall season and beyond. The enchanting geology of Sedona, Arizona serves as the inspiration for this piece. The richly textured cables, twisted stitches, and seed stitch echo the sandstone rock formations. Add the tweedy nubs and perfectly saturated shades of our Deluxe Worsted Tweed Superwash to the mix, and the result is a woolly reminder of a magical location.
Sedona is an open-front cardigan featuring cabled sleeves and pockets balanced out by a body of Stockinette stitch. Seed stitch decorates the hem and placket, which is worked simultaneously with the body. A slipped stitch selvedge offers an especially tidy finish.

PATTERN NOTES The body of this cardigan is knit flat in one piece from the bottom up. The fronts and back are separated at the underarms and worked separately, then the shoulders are joined using the three-needle bind-off. The sleeves are knit flat, separately, and sewn to the body using mattress stitch, or your preferred method for joining seams. Finally, the patch pockets are knit flat, separately, and attached to the left and right front.
The Cable pattern is both written and charted, however, the Sleeves are in chart form only. You may utilize the Cable pattern as outlined in the Stitch Guide as a reference for the Sleeve Charts.
In this pattern, work all slipped stitches purlwise.
