Inspired by an older design of mine, Elton, this cardigan takes the classic stripes, alternating solid and see-through fabric, but features a completely different construction and shape.

Milton is a seamless cardigan designed with a subtle shawl collar. There are two narrow saddle shoulders that give shape to an elegant shoulder line and set-in sleeves.
You can make Milton cardigan as long as you want. Since the fabric is featherweight and delicate, I made mine longer, allowing the fabric to dance with me as I move.
