This spring I wanted a versatile, stylish and flattering cardigan that was simple enough to be worn with just about everything. This cardigan keeps the basic styling simple, its short style is worn with negative ease, but small lace and cable details at the hem, cuff and neckline keep it interesting.
As the waist band sits just below the natural waist the wide ribbing pulls in snugly without needing to decrease the stitches. The bustline is designed to fit with a little negative ease which creates a form fitting garment without any side shaping.
Worked from the bottom up body and sleeves are joined at the yoke and worked together in one piece. There is minimal finishing when you are done, just bands and a small underarm graft.
Shown in size 34”/86.5cm with 1”/2.5 cm negative ease.
