Sleek and flattering, this cardigan is knit in one piece from the top down.  The wide front collar can be folded back or wrapped around depending on your mood (and the weather!).  Raglan shoulder shaping is worked in one piece and there is minimal seaming except for the back of neck and hip edging.
