Love: “This flattering fingertip length cardigan with a single button closure at the ribbed waist, is slightly flared from the waist down, for ease of movement. It is worked in one piece from the hem to the shoulder seams. The sleeve is worked from shoulder to cuff. The fitted shoulder is shaped with short rows, and (after the cap shaping-- Ed.) the tapered sleeve is worked in the round with a decrease panel down the top of the sleeve. This sample is made from a sportweight 70% merino and 30% silk combination that makes it lightweight with a soft drape.” The grace and subtle flow of this design will draw compliments everywhere you go, and the top-of-thigh length is a welcome change from all the croppery everywhere today.
