This raglan-style cardigan is sure to complement and elevate the wardrobe of any gentleperson of leisure; a sweater you might grab for taking the dog on a walk around the block or a long weekend at a cabin by the lake. The simple refinement of the X and O colorwork balances cozy seed-stitch in rugged tweed for a versatile garment that keeps the casual classy.

The Matinee Cardigan is knit flat from the top down, finished with inset pockets and a seed-stitch shawl color. A band of simple two-color stranded colorwork wraps around chest and arms. The boxy shape lends a masculine feel that could easily be softened by adding waist shaping.

This pattern includes colorwork charts.
