Pattern Description:

This warm cardigan will be the perfect addition to your winter weather wardrobe. The pattern includes instructions for both a zippered and buttoned front, making it versatile for different styles. This cardigan is knit from the top-down and has a long ribbed collar that you can zip (or button) up to the top on a breezy day. The yoke is created with increases to form a "contiguous" saddle shoulder. Short rows help to round out the shoulder caps. The button bands or zippered edges are easily picked up from slipped stitches at each front edge.
