This pattern is in collaboration with The Plucky Knitter.

Antoinette is a cropped, seamless little cardigan mostly worked flat from the top down, with a very loose gauge. The design features peplum shaping, short raglan sleeves and an easy and fun twisted cable motif (without cable needle) for the yoke. The edges are worked simultaneously in broken rib and button and button hole bands are picked up and bound off with i-cords.

The cardigan is intended to be worn with zero or little negative ease at the chest and frilled on the waist.
