For this cardigan I wanted to achieve a structured shape and tailored fit that would serve as a jacket. Striped side panels contain subtle shaping, the set-in sleeves are a slim fit with polka dot stranded color work at the wrists.
The body is knit is pieces, the sleeves in the round. For the double placket, stitches are picked up along the fronts and neck, knit in one piece with mitered corners.
