belle curve
The unusual construction of this lovely cardi creates an arched front and a gently curved back.

This shrug is an interesting variation on a classic top-down cardigan. Changing the yoke increases so that the front is a constant width creates a horizontal plane as the sleeves and back are knitted and shaped. It’s a new cardigan shape that will keep the most curious wondering how you did it.
