This pattern has been completely rewritten and resized and now includes 8 sizes.
A plush cabled cardigan worked in City Tweed with modified drop shoulder sleeves and a wide shawl collar. Guaranteed to keep any guy happy and warm on the coldest days this cardigan pulls double duty as a jacket in the spring and an indoor sweater in the winter. The cables are striking and linear without being fussy and the color is deep, dashing, and indeed debonair.
NOTE: this pattern has been rewritten to include shoulder seams.
