Although this stylish cardigan was inspired by Celtic knots and the columns & arches of a Gothic Cathedral, the cropped sleeve and single-button closure gives it a very modern look. The vertical columns create a flattering nipped-in look to the waistline, while the plaited cables pattern creates texture and interest around the bust and shoulders. The slightly flared bell edging completes the look and gives the cardigan a bit of embellishment. The ribbed band along each front is achieved by picking up sts, while the cabled collar edge is knit separately and then sewn on.
