This pattern is for a shrug or bolero type cardigan with elbow length dolman sleeves and optional contrasting Moss stitch trim. It is a cropped length, short in the front and reaching down to the waist in the back. The front is open and slightly curved with some bust shaping for adults. Loosely knit fingering weight yarn makes this perfect for summer or spring weather, though sport weights will work and make this a warmer style.

The styling is inspired by vintage patterns, contemporary silhouettes, and minimalism. You’ll find that the knitting is straight forward, fast, and mindless.

This pattern is suitable for beginners. It is worked flat in stockinette stitch and requires the skills of seaming, optional intarsia edge, picking up stitches, and short rows in adult sizes.
