Inspired by a bold feminine silhouette, the Riverside Cardi uses textured patterning at the waist and hips to create a casually elegant garment. The body uses strong waist shaping along with the textures and a wide v-neck to keep in the spirit of classic cardigans. Tiny, two-stitch cables can be worked with, or without, cable needles keeping this piece interesting for knitters of almost all skill levels.
