Simple but dramatic, this cardigan will be a real staple in your wardrobe. The large garter stitch pockets and I-cord buttonholes create a dramatic focal point. The long length of the cardigan is enhanced with smooth waist shaping and a large garter stitch shawl collar. Knit from the bottom up in one piece, shoulders are joined using a three needle bind off and the back of the collar is grafted for a seamless finish. Set-in sleeves are worked from the top down using short rows.
