Body-fitting cardigan with a hood forming a nice collar when it's down. The fronts have a simple cable run from bottom to top; both the back and the sleeves are worked in a simple rib pattern, which makes this cardigan to contour body without any shaping required. The cardigan is worked in one piece to underarms and then divided into fronts and back and finished separately to minimize sewing. Further, the cardigan was designed, so that no button holes are needed; instead, the closure is made up of 4-stitch I-cord tubes sewn on once the cardigan is finished - very simple (PICTURE TUTORIAL included). This adds a decorative element to this cardigan. The cardigan could be also worn opened without the buttons or closed with a belt only.
