This letterman’s sweater-inspired cardigan is a sweater chest staple you’ll be living in year-round. Stripes shine when worked in reverse stockinette—extra blips of color pop through at the transitions, so they really stand out! An open front, modest shawl collar, handy pockets, and pops of contrast trim take a simple top-down raglan up a notch. Added length makes it extra cozy, but a deep V neck and moderate waist shaping give this boyfriend-style sweater a feminine touch.
Note: the original yarn used for this pattern, Shalimar Yarns Enzo Aran, has been discontinued
