Cambridge Top-Down Cardigan #104
Who hasn’t owned a simple, shapeless, cardigan that was super comfortable, but lacking in personality and style? This top-down cardigan gives you the same comfort and wearability, but with a fresh, feminine aesthetic. The waist and hip shaping call attention to your curves, and a wide neckband with a rolled finish makes this piece stand out from the crowd. You’ll never go back to your sad old cardigan once you’ve worn this one.
This is a top-down, set-in sleeve pattern, with short-row shaping to shape the sleeve cap (instructions on how to work short rows are included). There are also tips on how to customize your fit.
