    About Amadou

    From Marie Régnier, the designer: "Amadou is the French name of a mushroom growing on tree trunks that can be used as a starter for lighting a fire. Warm and cosy, the cardigan could be worn as a layering piece, almost like a coat, for chilly autumnal mornings or evenings. It has a generous amount of ease at the bust and arms, so choose a size based on how you’d like to wear your cardigan."”

    This cardigan is worked top-down with raglan shaping and an overall cable motif. There are two main cable patterns; moss stitch is used on either side of the cable motifs at the underarms of the sleeves, and the sides of the cardigan. After the sleeves are separated, the body is worked in the established pattern, and pocket linings are made. The sleeves are worked in the round in the established pattern.

    The neckband and button-band are worked in double-knit, and the neck is shaped to create a shawl collar.
