Open-front cardigans are my favorite ones because they are so versatile – and never too tight to close! I found this intriguing cable pattern on the internet and liked it so much that I decided to develop a whole garment around it – here it is:

“Boxed and Cabled” is a boxy cardigan with a broad horizontal cable strip starting at the center back and continuing all over the sleeves. Work begins with the cable panel, then stitches for the back are picked up from the edge of the cable strip, and the back is continued down to the armholes, after which stitches for both fronts are picked up at the top edge of the cable panel, working here, too, down to the armholes, where the parts are joined and worked together down to the hem. When the body is completed, sleeve stitches are picked up, and the sleeves worked down to the cuffs. This cardigan is comfortable, versatile and interesting to knit – all of it, of course, completely seamless!
