This cardigan was inspired by the Trapeze coats made popular in the 1950’s. These coats were also called ‘Swing’ coats, hence this cardigan’s fun name. It is constructed in top-down raglan style and utilizes short rows in the front to create the exaggerated shaping. Pattern includes charts and videos.
