E-Z V-Neck Cardigan to Knit K2.45

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit and purl

Pattern Description:

This cool, comfortable, top-down, lightly flared cardigan closes with 5 buttons, with one more to decorate the top of each sleeve edge. The wide sleeves are slightly tapered with a decrease panel from shoulder to cuff. Wear it with a tee or lace camisole and jeans, or little black dress. Minimal sewing at back of neck only. This is a special little piece that belongs in everyone's wardrobe. Armholes are extended out slightly in a curve from the body of the piece, and sleeves picked up from there and knit down; it's a kind of set-in/drop shoulder hybrid. And it is really done in a 1-ply cashmere which makes it light as air.
