Pattern Description:

This cardigan is worked seamlessly in one piece from the neck down. Sleeves are placed on scrap yarn while body is worked. Body features waist shaping and 2/2 rib edged sleeves, collar and hem. Button/buttonhole bands and then collar are worked when body is finished. Body and sleeve lengths are easily adjustable to fit and preference.

The Wanda Nell Cardigan is named after my aunt Wanda for her simple, classic style. It's a great little sweater for using some of that pretty sock yarn you've been collecting. For most sizes, just two large skeins of fingering weight yarn will give you a three-season coverup with just that little touch of warmth and color you need over a dress or paired with a skirt or jeans.
