I love cardigans and jackets because they're so wearable. Madison started with the idea of smocking, but instead of a true smocked stitch I found this alternating rib with a twisted stitch that is so easy to work and looks very similar to smocking.
18 stitches and 22 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch
