Casta Diva is a seamless, scoop neck cropped cardigan mostly worked flat, from the top down, shaped with short rows.
The cardigan features an easy cable pattern (you don’t need to use cable needle!), underbust darts and waist shaping for an extra feminine look!
Casta Diva is perfect to use little amounts of luxury yarn: knit it at loose gauge and you will have a very quick little treasure.
The pattern uses raglan method sleeves and is intended to be worn with zero or little negative ease at the chest and a little drapey on the hips.
