This luxurious little open-front cardigan transitions with ease from cocktails with a little black dress to kicking around in jeans at the beach—you won’t want to leave home without it. With an elegant sweep of openwork down the center front, it flatters every one of its eight sizes (from XS to 4X) with subtle shaping that skims the body. The cable and lace motif is repeated at the back waist and sleeves, which may be knit full or elbow length. Its five simple to knit piece are worked flat from hem to shoulder with incorporated lapel/collar.
