Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit
  • Purl
  • Twisted Stitches
  • Basic Shaping

Pattern Description:

Must have modern cardigan with shawl collar. Twisted stitch patterns are combined to create a texture rich fabric with flattering lines and details along the front neckline and center back.

The body shaping adds just the right fit skims your curves. Add hand-crafted buttons for that truly dazzling look.

I wanted to design a eye catching piece that wasn't too hard to make and had very little finishing. Living in Colorado a little sleeveless cardigan/vest is the perfect addition to any day out in the sun.
