March 2018--This design has been re-released with new images and formatting along with new neckline and sleeve options.

This cardi begs to be worn all day, from morning coffee to an evening out. It’s worked top-down seamlessly with raglan sleeves. Cables steam their way up each front, down the back and accent each wrist. Design includes two collar options: the original cozy shawl collar doubled for stability and extra warmth or a more delicate crewneck for milder conditions. Sleeves are worked in a super stretchy rib to make the fit accommodating and include both bracelet length and long sleeve instructions. Gentle waist shaping is highlighted with flattering cabling at the natural waist. Increases and cables are charted. Instructions are geared towards experienced knitters comfortable reading their work and incorporating new stitches into pattern while working with multiple charts. Shown in Small (grey) with no ease and Medium (pink) with 2”/5 cm positive ease.
