Pattern Description:

This classic unisex cardigan in nine sizes (XS/S/M/L/1X/2X/3X/4X/5X) has a relaxed fit and a sleek look when knit in a soft yarn blend. Seams accented with ribbed detail draw the eye upward, while dramatically deep button bands create a focal point at center front to continue a flattering line. The collar can be worn standing up or folded down. Its five simple pieces are knit flat, bottom-up and seamed, making this garment a very portable, quick knitting project
