Put a little swing in your step with this body-skimming cardigan. Flattering to any body type, a closed-cable motif graces the upper back and two mirrored cables frame a soft gusset. The moss stitch kimono-style bands frame the front, with a single dramatic button placed near the sternum.

Skill level
CYC Level 3. Pattern involves top-down raglan shaping with a variety of cables and stitches. While no single part of the pattern is very difficult, there are a lot of moving parts to keep track of simultaneously.

Note: For some reason I needed to step way down in my needle size when knitting this sample. You might more realistically expect to use a US 4 or 5 for the larger size needle and use one size smaller for the trims and edgings.
