Ambrosia is knit seamlessly from the top down with dart-like waist shaping that is further accentuated with ribbing. Cardigan fronts are trimmed with cables for stability and the neckline is finished with an I-cord for a clean, elegant look.
Cable pattern is both written and charted for your convenience.

The cardigan uses hook-and-eye closures along the front edges and is designed to be worn with a close fit to ensure there is enough tension to keep the closures securely fastened.
Yarn that was used for this project is Reynolds Saucy and is a classic mercerized cotton in Worsted weight with slight sheen and a great stitch definition.
