Save time check your gauge.

Delicate, lightweight, and lofty, Arabesque is the perfect layering piece whenever there is a chill in the air. Soothing half double crochet and tailored, set-in sleeves makes this cardigan infinitely wearable. We’re quite sure you’ll never leave the house without it.

Odette is beautifully lofty, but it requires a careful gauge measurement. Take the time to do a 6” or larger square gauge swatch. As you work, continue to check your gauge accuracy to ensure you are working at the correct tension.
The body of this cardigan is worked back and forth in one piece to the armholes, then is divided for back and fronts. The sleeves are worked separately in joined rounds.
