Clouds in my Coffee is a completely seamless, asymmetrical cardigan knit all in one piece from the top-down. The neck and button bands are worked as you knit the piece so there is no picking up of stitches at the end!

The right front of the cardigan features an easy faux cable eyelet rib stitch pattern which is both written out in the pattern as well as charted and the body features some flattering a-line shaping.

Pattern is written for 4 buttonholes at the top but you can easily modify to add more/less depending on your preference.
