A lightweight but warm collared cardigan with
flattering shaping that’s great for work or everyday wear.


Pattern Update! I’ve included instructions without the steek, as I know steeks are intimidating for many people.

This sweater is worn with 0-2” of positive ease. It is knit from the top down with raglan shaping. Instructions are included for working body either back and forth, or in the round with a steeked front opening.

Cuffs are hemmed, and i-cord edges the front, forming button loops. Ribbing creates some waist shaping and increases create a slight A-line to the lower body.

If making a yarn substitution, it’s recommended you choose a yarn of similar gauge in 100% wool, if steeking.

Suitable for an intermediate knitter. Includes written instructions and schematic.
