The Straightaway Cardigan is handsome enough for a man, but the design is truly unisex. This oversized drop-shoulder cardigan showcases an allover geometric pattern that combines brioche stitch and garter-stitch squares in interesting vertical and horizontal lines. The edging is worked in garter stitch to enhance the garter squares in the cardigan body.
