Troian (pronounced troy-an) is a sexy but sophisticated cardigan featuring cables, stockinette, and simple rib details. The cuffed, elbow length sleeves draw the eye up and to the textured front and fun snap and toggle closures placed from the collar to just below the bust.

This cardigan is knit seamlessly from the top down using set-in sleeve construction. The yoke and bodice are knit first to the bottom hem. Stitches are then picked up around the armholes for the sleeves, which are initially shaped by using short rows and then worked seamlessly in the round from the top down.

FINISHED MEASUREMENTS
At high bust, button bands overlapping: 27 ½ (29 ¼, 32, 34, 36, 37 ¼, 40, 41 ½, 44, 45 ¼, 48 ½, 50)” / 70 (74, 81, 86, 91, 95, 102, 105, 112, 115, 123, 127) cm

Finished Measurements noted represent the circumference of the finished knitted piece at high bust (the circumference of your chest at underarm level) when worn closed and button bands are overlapping. When worn open, cardigan has no ease. This cardigan is intended to be worn with approx 2” (5 cm) negative ease at the bustline. In order to achieve the fit as shown, choose a size with a finished measurement that is approx 2” (5 cm) smaller than your actual bust measurement.
