The Macaulay Cardigan is a classic, semi-fitted cardigan with set-in sleeves. It has deep ribbed welts at the waist and cuffs, accentuated by a contrasting band of Garter Stitch which gives the effect of piping.

Macaulay is knitted from the bottom up in pieces and seamed, then finished by picking up stitches for the button bands and neckband.
