This fitted lightweight cardigan is set off with delicate details. Braided waist is worked first — sideways. Stitches
are picked up for the peplum, worked top down, followed by the body, which is worked from the bottom up, making it easy to adjust how much length is desired above and below the waist for the perfect and most flattering fit. Braided cables accent raglan shaping. Waist and hip shaping are included as are options for both short or long sleeves. Shown in Size M with 1.5”/4 cm positive ease. Design is intended to be worn fitted; knit the size closest to your actual measurements.
