Taking inspiration from the lines of Art Deco architecture, Lempicka combines raglan increases with slipped stitches and continuous cable crossings in this body-skimming hooded cardigan.

This pattern is challenging, and recommended for knitters who are very comfortable with “at the same time” instructions as the design lines and body shaping are worked simultaneously. Coloured stitch markers will be your friend!

Looking for a boxier fit? Work a few extra increase rows before dividing for the body and sleeves, and omit the waist decreases and increases.
