A versatile V-neck cardigan with simple lines and a decorative rib buttonband. Comfortable like your favorite sweatshirt, only much more sophisticated. Perfect for day or night, work or play, this cardigan will be a timeless wardrobe staple. Plus, worked in worsted weight wool it will be ready to wear in no time!

This pattern is worked top down with a contiguous yoke. The buttonband begins with Judy’s Magic Cast On and is worked in one piece. The body stitches are picked up from the buttonband. It continues in one piece, worked at the same time as the yoke and the rest of the body. Once the body and sleeves are complete, the only finishing is attaching the toggles, loops and hook and eyes.

Modeled in size 34.25 on a 34 inch bust, with 2 inches added to sleeve length and with cuffs turned back.
