Parioli was my second Ravellenics challenge for the 2018 games, and is named for a neighborhood in Rome we stayed. It is a top-down, raglan sleeve cardigan with an easily memorized lace edging at the cuffs, collar, and bottom edge; the only finishing is weaving in ends. It’s a very quick knit, using bulky yarn, and has gentle waist shaping.
