Shalom Knitted Cardigan
Shalom is a simple knitted cardigan with a striking appearance designed by Meghan McFarlane. This triple-yoked sweater is seamlessly knit in the round, top down, with a single button closure. If you have fear of buttonhole making you could omit the button and use a shawl pin closure. The cap sleeves bow a little and give the cardigan extra structure and a dramatic shape.
The original sweater was made for a size medium, 34-35 inch bust, because the cardigan only needs to close at the neck, you won’t have to worry so much about getting a perfect fit around the bust. If you would like to make the yoke larger to accommodate a larger bust or wider shoulders, try adding extra stitches to the garter borders or use larger needles/yarn, or simply add more stitches to the body and yoke.
Also note that the original cardigan was made for a tall woman, so if you are 6 feet tall or don’t like long sweaters, be sure to reduce the length of the sweater by the appropriate amount of rows.
