Simple style is combined with delicate cables and intriguing construction in the Daiva Cardigan. This open front cardigan with fitted 3/4 sleeves is worked in one piece from the top down, using the contiguous sleeve method developed by Susie Myers. Cables are worked along the neckband, center back, shoulder and center sleeve. I-cord is worked as you go to finish the front opening edge. Stitch patterns are written and charted.
Daiva is worn with overlapped fronts; choose a size 4-5” larger than your bust circumference. Shown in size 41.5” on a 36.5” bust.
