9.6.17- this pattern got a makeover and is now updated for the new KO line. Instructions for a full length sleeve are now included along with the shorter sleeve (original design is modeled slightly off the shoulder with a 3/4 length sleeve).

If you have a sister, you either swiped clothes from her closet, or you were like I was and were the victim of your little sister’s deviousness. If we still lived together, I can tell you that this sweater would have already mysteriously disappeared from my closet. This charming, go-with-everything cardigan is worked seamlessly from the top down with no finishing required as the collar is worked alongside the body. The simple texture alternates between garter and rib. Shown in Small with 3” of positive ease and options are provided for either ¾-length or long sleeves. This pattern is suitable for adventurous beginning knitters.
