This is the cozy cardigan that you will reach for anytime there is a chill in the air. It’s knit on large needles and from the top down for quick results and minimal seaming.

Simple vine lace panels create a pretty accent in the front, along with the uniquely gathered patch pockets. A boldly defined ribbed waist, nicely shaped generous collar, and slightly wide, easy sleeves makes sure that this bulky knit is most flattering to wear,

Lots of buttons down the front allow you to keep warm or let the jacket hang loose.

And with the top-down design, you can adjust the length of the body and sleeves as you see fit! This sample has slightly shorter bracelet-length sleeves. Just add a few rows for regular length sleeves.
