Pretty Bower is deliciously clever to knit. Beginning at the bottom edge of the front pieces, this cardigan is worked up, over the shoulders, and down to the bottom edge of the back, with only the sides to seam. A simple length of i-cord adds stability to the open back neck, and leaf motifs grace the cardigan fronts.
