The Wool and The Gang Stargazer Cardigan Kit gives you everything you need to knit up a two-tone cardigan with a lot of pizzazz. Intermediate knitters can level up their skills with this project, which includes reverse stocking stitches and cabling.
This is a sweater with a lot of visual interest. As if the reverse stocking stitch didn’t give it enough texture, thick cables run down both the front and the sleeves. The contrasting tones along the collar and several centimeters of the sleeve and body can be a dramatic pop or a subtle shading, depending on the yarns you choose.
The Stargazer Cardigan kit uses Wool and the Gang’s Alpachino Merino. It’s a bulky alpaca/merino blend that is soft, squishy and oh so huggable. (Just like you’ll be if you’re wearing this cardigan!) It’s 100% natural and a perfect weight for year-round knitting.

You will want both circular, straight and cable knitting needles for this project. If you don’t have any on hand, visit our Needles and Hooks section.
If you like the two-tone look of this sweater but you’re not interested in the cables, or you think it might be too much of a stretch for your current skill set, the Wool and the Gang Grace Cardigan kit is for you!
