Light and airy, this boxy deep v-neck cardigan is created within a stockinette-based fabric stitch pattern. Choose to work it with low or high contrast, or even in a single color. Either way, the texture will make it pop. Buttonband is worked alongside the sweater for simple & minimal finishing and stripes are worked intarsia. Sweater is worked from the bottom up with charted neckline shaping and drop-shoulder style seamless sleeves. Primary stitch pattern is worked throughout body and sleeves and is written as well as charted. Knit the size that is 8-12”/20.5-30.5 cm larger than your actual bust measurement; shown in Size 3 with 10”/25.5 cm positive ease. Pattern is designed for experienced knitters comfortable with reading their work and ready for a challenge.

This design comes to life with two beautiful yarns, Biches & Buches Le Gros Silk & Mohair in Extra Pale Pink with Lavender Lune Yarn Co. Slub in Flutter.
