Costanza is a cardigan with the fit of a tailored jacket. The structure is provided by the seams and the unique shape of the shoulders and the armholes. The simple stitch pattern compliments the subtle color change of a semi-solid yarn. The buttonloop closures complete the tailored look. This cardigan is worked from the bottom-up in pieces, which makes it a great on-the-go knitting project.

Written and charted directions are given for the stitch patterns. Measurements are given in both centimeters and inches.
