Being a cardigan is no small task. Most people will rely on you to comfort them, to warm them, to make them feel better… even to look better!
No question, a cardigan can be a very, very good friend.
Being a good friend is no small task either. This pattern is inspired by my very good friend who is always, always there.

This is a simple pattern with a boxy fit and dropped shoulders.
It is worked seamlessly from the top down. You work the upper back first, then the fronts, and finally you join the body at the underarm
The sleeves are picked up and worked in the round.
It features a series of bands alternating between stockinette and textured stitches.
