A comfortable cardigan with a wide cable panel that runs down both fronts and the back. To make the eye-catching cable panel the main feature all other parts are worked in Stockinette stitch. The cardi is supposed to have a slightly oversized silhouette, enhanced by the way the dropped shoulders are worked.

The cardigan is worked back and forth in rows from the bottom up in separate pieces and seamed.
