This warm cardigan will be the perfect addition to your winter weather wardrobe. The pattern includes instructions for both a zippered and buttoned front, making it versatile for different styles. This cardigan is knit from the top-down and has a long ribbed collar that you can zip (or button) up to the top on a breezy day. The yoke is created with increases to form a “contiguous” saddle shoulder. Short rows help to round out the shoulder caps. The button bands or zippered edges are easily picked up from slipped stitches at each front edge.

Happy Knitting, Amanda Woeger
