Pattern Description:

Escarpment is a lovely everyday cardigan with Elongated Garter Stitch sleeves and bodice. The V-neck and hip darts are flattering and easy to work.

Escarpment is knit seamlessly from the top down with raglan sleeves. The body is worked flat, with the sleeves worked in the round. Bands are picked up and knit once the body is complete. Note that this cardigan does not have fastenings - shown pinned closed with a lovely fabric pin from Jenna Rose.
