女滝 | MEDAKI : Japanese (Romaji) for (n) the smaller waterfall (of the two)
A super sweet top down seamless cardigan made with Eco-organic Cotton – a DK weight yarn with beautiful drape and decadent softness. The feature waterfall fronts cascade around the waist and hip to provide stylish shape across the back.
Yoke is provisionally cast-on to work a long sleeve top down raglan cardigan with shaping to the back. I-cord bind-off neckband is worked before picking up stitches around the body to create the stunning waterfall fronts with the beautiful feature stitch.
