Lake Breeze is a totally seamless raglan cardigan knit from the top-down in one piece, somewhat inspired by Persistence. The cables on the back give it a little more style than a plain stockinette cardigan would - but not too much, making this a great cardi for advanced beginners, who would like to get a little adventurous with their knitting.
This is truly a “one-piece wonder”, aside from the underarm stitches, there is absolutely no seaming and no picking up stitches required! There is also an option to knit Lake Breeze as a pullover.

Happy Knitting, Amanda Woeger
