Pattern Description:

This cozy cardigan is a simple and rewarding knit - the finished garment is wonderfully flattering for lots of different shapes!

Solace is a seamless cardigan with raglan shaping, meaning that it's easy to get a lovely professional finish, and you can try it on as you go to make sure that it fits you nicely. Three quarter length sleeves can be worn in any season or can be lengthened, if desired.

A simple slip stitch pattern is worked throughout with a ribbed band that is worked around the neck, front edges, hem and cuffs. No sewing of seams or grafting makes Solace wearable after weaving in a few ends!
