Blithewold Cardigan

With its interesting combination of stitches, this cardigan looks quite complex but is actually easy to work. The main section of the design features a 12-row cable that twists only once, for simple repetative knitting. The lower border is done in a fun-to-knit box stitch, and the sleeves, side panels and bands are worked in basic garter stitch.
