Books and a good cup of tea are two of life’s great pleasures. What better way to enjoy your morning cuppa than curled up on a couch, wearing this beautiful cardigan, reading your favorite novel?

This cardigan features a garter and mirrored cable on the v-neck fronts and center back. Waist shaping is worked at the front and back dart lines, and three-quarter set-in sleeves are flared over the forearm.

This versatile cardigan can be worn with or without buttons; pattern includes instructions for both options.
