The name says it all! This stunning cardi is made from five easy-to-make pieces: three rectangles and two trapezoids. The simplicity of the main pattern pieces allowed us to lavish all our attention on the pattern stitches. The stunning cables on the center back panel will take your breath away, and the reversible lace pattern made with post stitches is light and airy on one side with dramatic lace ribbing on the other.
