The Sensible Cardigan is knit from the top down, which means it’s easy to try on and customize. An elegant lace pattern flows down the back of the sweater, and the rest is knitted in Stockinette stitch. Keep your sleeves short, as shown here, or add some length (see page 54). Or if you’re busty, this sweater is a great template for adding some bust dart shaping (see page 112), to be sure it’s a perfect fit!
