This long elegant cardigan has a very unusual construction, that is as entertaining to knit as it is a fun to figure out. The sweater is worked in every which direction; bottom-up, top-down, sideways and diagonally, for a completely seamless garment. The design has a contemporary silhouette with a modified dolman sleeve and features an open front with a generous drapey full length collar, diagonally knitted arms with a raised seam-stitch running from shoulder-top to wrist, and seed-stitch edgings all around. Flattering for curvy and straight figures alike, the optional hip shaping makes this garment easy to fit to your body type.
