This form-fitting cardigan, with its charming combination of lace and cables, is sure become a staple in your wardrobe. The lace and cable pattern is interesting to knit without being tedious, and is easily committed to memory for a speedy knit. To reduce seaming, the cardigan features a knit-in button band. The left front button band is extended beyond the shoulder seam and sewn in to the back neck opening. Just like its namesake, the whole wheat cardigan can be combined with a wide variety of items, always with delicious results. You’ll be the toast of the town!
