This cardigan is worked top-down seamlessly and cut open at the end, i.e., steeked. The cardigan has a round yoke and a cute all-over colorwork pattern with leaves on the yoke. The cardigan has long sleeves and no waist shaping. The hem is cropped. Because of the colorwork there’s no bust dart but you can easily lengthen the body of the sweater.
