Highly dimensional surface texture, blistery texture (in the nicest sense) trim this basic cardigan transforming it into something not so very plain at all.

The bobbly texture comes from increases and
decreases, propelled by the extra boost of stitches elongated by dropping YOs. Don’t worry about shaping in the pattern stitch. All of the textured bits are rectangular.

An optional wrap gives a sense of multiple layers. Secured firmly to the front buttons and one shoulder, it’s no fuss drama. Well, drama in my sense of the word. Is there such a thing as low-key drama?
