This elegant, slightly A-line long cardigan has a dramatically cabled front band, cuffs and pockets. The body of the cardigan is textured with the easy to knit elongated moss-stitch. Side seams are accentuated with a little cable.
Knit in easy DK, this fabulous cardigan will keep you warm and stylish!
This is a swingy cardigan without closure, but it would be perfectly possible to crochet a little loop at the edge and hide a button between the cables.
The shawl collar was knit separately, since the yarn is extremely drapy. Also, because the flow of the body pattern and the shawl collar is different and could cause pulling. If your yarn has less drape and more bounce, you could try knitting them continuously, but I’d make a pretty big swatch first.
