The perfect cardigan, fun to knit, great to wear with just the right amount of details.Â The body is knit flat in one piece from the bottom up with subtle cable details and the sleeves are worked in the round.Â Finally the yoke is worked in one piece with an unusual modified saddle shoulder construction.Â If you are new to cables all cables are shown in both charted written format making it a great way to learn to read a chart.
This cardigan was originally released as a KAL. All techniques used in this pattern are fully described with links to videos if needed.
