Charleston Top-Down Cardigan #109
Charleston, South Carolina, has a reputation for friendliness, good taste, and culture. Those describe this stunning short-sleeve cardigan beautifully. Easily dressed up or down, Charleston has a classic feel and fitted silhouette, slightly wider in the hips than the bust. As with all Basix patterns, tips are included to help you change the waist and hip shaping if you’d like, to better fit your own shape.
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.
