I have been dreaming for a cardigan with these long flattering lines for a while… One that will go with anything in my wardrobe.
Longline is my dream cardigan come true… It’s so fantastic and great to wear with its wide rib collar. With its simple lines, it is perfect to show off any yarn, but especially good for beautiful hand-dyed ones.

Note: Several people have found that they get holes in the shoulder area. This might depend on how you make your m1ps. I have found that some people place the strands of yarn on the needle in a way and some in other, which might lead to confusion. So I recommend that if you don’t like the way your shoulders are looking, you try looking at some of these tutorials:
