Waronne is my eldest sister. She is feminine, stylish, really cool and always in a good mood. This cardigan, designed with her in mind, has one simple cable along the left side of the body, reaching up and over the shoulder. Worked seamlessly from the top down, it begins with a provisional cast on at the shoulders, and the fronts are worked to the underarm. Then the back is worked from the shoulder stitches to the underarm, then joined with the fronts. The lower body is worked in one piece down to the hem. Sleeve stitches are picked up along the armhole, and sleeve caps are worked top down and shaped with short rows.
