“This cardigan was inspired by a desire to play with volume and drape in combination with a strong, architectural stitch pattern and clean, flattering details. The deep, bell-like swoop of the bottom hem is balanced by the tailored shoulders and three-quarter length sleeves, and both are complimented by the soft falls of the fronts and shawl collar. Add to this an interesting take on traditional raglan shaping, and you have a cardigan that’s both intriguing to knit and effortless to wear!” – Bristol Ivy

Additional information has been included in the pattern with regards to the underarm shaping; no additional charts are necessary. For close-up details of this shaping, please see photos of the underarm here.

Cardigan is worked in one piece from the top down, with the sleeves and back knit from the collar to the underarm. The sleeves are put on holders while stitches are picked up from the front edges of the sleeves and joined with the back to work the body to the hem. Stitches are then picked up all along the neckline and worked in the round with the live stitches to create a mitered border and shawl collar. The sleeves are worked in the round on DPNs.
