Pattern Description:

If you're not a 'shawl' person and prefer a little more definition in the shoulder and armhole shaping without sacrificing drape, this maddy laine cardigan should fit the bill.

Although it is a fingering weight yarn, which will need you to knit a few more stitches and rows, the result will be a light and luxurious garment that will take you to many an occasion and transition through many a season. The front opening of the garment is shaped on the diagonal from the lower edge.

The collar, worked in a reversible pattern stitch, is knit as you complete the front sections. The sleeves are set-in, ending at bracelet length.

Choose a yarn that drapes well - such as elann.com Peruvian Collection Baby Silk or Baby Cashmere.
