I love the result and I always like the versatility of cardigans. I can always wear a good cardigan when I go out at night or out shopping in a fully airconditioner departmental store.

This cardigan is knit in the round, from the top down, and in one piece, so there's no seaming. Pattern is available in sport weight and DK weight.
