Wide lapels extend into a deep fold-over shawl collar, tailored with short-rows to create an elegant fit at the back neck. Garter stitch trim and toggle closures give this cardigan a relaxed feel to become a comfortable yet polished β€œweekend” wardrobe staple.

Cardigan is worked in one piece to underarms, and then split for back and fronts. Sleeves are knit circularly and then joined to the body for a raglan shaped yoke. Lapels are knitted in and worked on the bias. Left and right collar tabs are then shaped using short-rows and grafted in the back.
