This cardigan is worked from the bottom up in pieces and then seamed. Waist shaping is located in between the cable panels, drawing them into an hourglass shape and creating the illusion of a curvier waist. The cardi is offered in both short-sleeved and long-sleeved versions.

Quince and Co.’s Chickadee is a wonderfully soft, slightly springy wool with great stitch definition. You will need 5 (5, 5, 6, 6, 7, 7, 8, 9, 10) hanks for the short sleeved version and 6 (7, 7, 8, 8, 9, 10, 10, 11, 12) hanks for the long sleeved version.
