This classic cardigan will be a timeless addition to your wardrobe. Color blocking adds visual interest to a highly textured fabric. Small details such as a shaped neckband and garter-stitch ridges between the edges and the main body of the sweater make this piece particularly special. Set-in sleeves and waist shaping contribute to the fitted silhouette.

Errata:
Pg. 51, Gauge needle should be US #6/4 mm, not US #7/4.5 mm.
Pg. 52, Under Hem, after completing ribbing, knit 3 rows instead of 4. Then change to MC and knit 1 row. Then continue working the pattern as written.
