Like the original pullover, the Petra cardigan is a charmer: All simple stitches, easy construction, and effortless style. Knitted in Lark and featuring a reversed version of Petra’s rib columned yoke and reverse stockinette in the body and longer, bracelet-length sleeves, this top-down raglan sweater looks good in any color and with anything.
