This pattern was designed as part of The Authentic Collection, a handful of patterns designed with my heart and my origins in mind ❤️

Watch the Collection’s preview here.

This sweater was designed out of a specific need. Every time I went out on a date night or to a fancy place, I felt that my hand-knit sweaters were not appropriate.
This Fancy Cardi is worked seamlessly from the top down with a very interesting construction and using a stitch pattern that looks very complicated but is really very easy to work.
Hand-knit garments can be as fancy as you want them to be. This cardigan was especially designed to showcase your knitting in a delicate and fashionable way.
