Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store:
This man’s shawl-collar cardigan features set-in saddle shoulders, which emphasize the stately ribbing at the shoulder line. Ribbing at the hem and cuffs blends smoothly into a garter-rib pattern that creates a vertical aesthetic without making the sweater pull in as much as regular ribbing. A classic sweater for the man in your life, this cardigan will wear from year to year with gentlemanly grace.
