A dose of color can spice up many an outfit. This mustard short-sleeve cardigan is a perfect example.

It begins with a yoke worked side to side with clever short rows to form a gracefully curved neckline. Stitches are then picked up along the bottom edge to work the body from the top-down.

Small cable panels are added to accent the front lines. A group of small cables are worked down the center back, then gathered and crossed to narrow at the waist for a flattering effect.

Wide ribbed front bands and short ribbed armhole bands are then added for the finishing touch.

The result? A great accent piece that will spice up any ensemble while keeping things ultra feminine and chic.
