Garments worked in heavy weight yarns often overwhelm a small knitter’s frame or add unwanted bulk to a plus-sized figure. Not so with the shapely Gyroscopic Cardigan. With its fit-and-flare silhouette, this sweater will flatter every figure while providing welcome warmth on a chilly autumn day.

Oversized, dramatic cables are reminiscent of spinning gyroscopes, and undulate up both the front panels and the back. The cables are set off by a simple reverse-ribbed sleeve texture.

A turned collar and button bands add structure, and sturdy snap closures are concealed by the fabulous buttons of your choice. This pattern is available in my pattern store.
