Pattern Description:

This cardigan sort of designed itself. All I knew was I wanted it to be asymmetrical and fasten at the top everything else fell into place as I swatched with the wonderful, new-to-me yarn. Honor has the most amazing drape, perfect for this loosely-fitting baby cardigan, and perfectly soft too.
