Kate is a top-down fingering cardigan with set-in short row sleeves and a strong, angular panel down each side of the front. The rolled button band is knitted on at the end and is unexpected, representing going against the grain. The 1x1 rib at the hem and cuffs is a nod to the fashions from the mid-20th century. The neat I-cord at the neck gives the cardigan an elegant finish. Perfect knit for intermediate knitters and beginners looking for an adventure.
