The Clematis Cardigan is a cleverly simple and elegant design. It has a clean silhouette that features an allover cable pattern that looks complicated but that only requires a few steps. The cardigan is worked back and forth in separate pieces and seamed, and the front twisted rib bands are picked up and knit after the sweater is assembled.
