Skill Level

This captivating cardigan features bold, sinuous cables placed symmetrically on the front, back, and sleeves. The cable is combined with a berry stitch to add depth and create an interesting, contrasting texture. The vertical lines and streamlined fit in this hip-length cardigan flatters many different body types, while the deep shawl collar and curved front edge creates an hourglass shape. Stockinette stitch is used along the side and sleeve seams, to ensure straightforward and smooth seaming. The button band, shawl collar, and bottom ribbing are knit-in after the cardigan is assembled by picking up stitches using a circular needle. Short-row shaping is used to create the shawl collar. With a sweater so interesting to knit and attractive to wear, you may decide to make more than one!
