*******************

Cove Palisades is a sweet little cardigan that is a quick knit and has just enough details to be interesting all the way to the last stitch.

Cove Palisades is that perfect go-to sweater that looks equally good dressed up or down - wear it with jeans or fancy dresses.
 
Columns of ribbing down the center back flow into a notched V that allows for freedom of movement and adds a bit of flow to the fabric. It’s easy to make the sleeves longer or shorter and choose your sleeve finish too.
 
Construction is top-down and totally seamless with a raglan yoke. The loose fit and waist/high hip length makes it a flattering fit for many body types. The hemline finish is a simple one and you get to choose your neckline and sleeve finishes.
 
The pattern includes options for two neck finishes: I-Cord BO or a short Mock Collar that extends the pattern of the body (or leave it with just the cast on finish as in the sample photo!) Sleeves as shown are ¾ length with finishing options to either match the body hemline or a vented, ribbed cuff to match the back ribbing and vent. Sleeves can easily be made full length.

The instructions are written with no need for charts. The pattern has been professionally tech edited and tested.
