Make this cardigan in wool for winter, or make it in hemp, linen, or cotton for summer.
Stockinette stitch in a slightly loose gauge makes a lovely, effortless drape. Short rows are used to make the front shorter than the back for a stylish and fun shape. Increases are worked at the sides for an A-line silhouette which adds to the drape and flow of this elegant, but casual cardigan. The picot bind-off adds a touch of charm and lots of interest.
This cardigan is worked from the top down, in one piece. The set-in sleeves are picked up at the armholes and worked top down and in the round.
This pattern uses a provisional cast-on, and it uses short rows to shape the shoulders, sleeve caps, and bottom.
