The perfect Cardigan for transitioning the seasons, this essential Tunisian Crochet Cardigan features ¾ raglan sleeves and decorative ribbing.

Worked from the top-down and completely seamless, the body is worked flat and the sleeves are worked in the round. Tunisian Knit Stitch is used for the body and sleeves, to contrast the crossed Tunisian Simple Stitch ribbing used for the crew neck, hem, cuffs and button-bands.

The body is the ideal cropped length to wear over a dress, with the option for the Cardigan to come in at the waist for additional shaping.
