Classic Slant Cardigan
Pattern Description from Interweave Knits: “Simple ribs and a cable panel placed in an offbeat arrangement make a strong statement in this asymmetrical cardigan. Just as in modern jazz, elements break away from their predictable pathways, but together they form a coherent design. Deborah found it a challenge to place the cable on the diagonal, but, in the end, she liked the visual surprise of the strong slanting line. The wide ribs on the body pull in for a close-fitting silhouette. The left front is worked straight, the right front angles from the lower body to the shoulder.”
