“A scoop neck and no ribbing at cuffs, hem, and neckline give the Currant Cardigan clean-lined texture that looks as though it were cut out of patterned cloth. A winding elliptical cable pattern calls double helixes and garden trellises to mind. A hardworking wool blend yarn makes stitches pop.”

Note: “Using a sturdy cast-on such as the Old Norwegian cast-on will help to keep the stockinette stitch at the hems and cuffs from rolling. Wet-blocking and use of pins will also help to keep the stockinette stitch flat.
