This beautiful cardigan will go anywhere - from home, to work, to a night out. Because it's worked from the top down, you can make it any length that suits you. And the waist and hip shaping make the cardigan figure-flattering. Wear it over your favorite tank top, or work the matching Top-Down Shell (Pattern #169) to go with it.
The yarn I used works up at a gauge of 6 sts per inch in Stockinette stitch; if you wish to use a different yarn, make sure you find one that will match this gauge.
24 sts and 33 rows = 4" (10 cm) in Stockinette stitch
At 6' tall, I used to have a hard time finding sweaters with long enough sleeves. So I took up knitting to make my own sweaters.
