Pattern Description:

I wanted to use drop stitches to create an A-line shape in a sweater. I chose a yarn with a lot of drape for a graceful flattering garment. It's a very wearable sweater that can be worn over a cami or tank or layered over long sleeves.

A seamless short sleeve cardigan knit from the top
down. The round yoke has eyelets marking the
increases. The attached front bands are knit in
ribbing. Flattering A-line shaping is accented with
a dropped stitch pattern.

? Included in the pattern are photos, a complete list
of abbreviations, a stitch glossary and schematic.

? Experience with pattern reading recommended.
