|Job type||Test knit|
This elegant, cardigan has A-line shaping to provide ease around the hips with side slits at the hem for more movement. Designed for my “How To Not Get Bored With Knitting” series, different stitch patterns come together so as soon as you get bored with one section, the whole thing stops and a new stitch pattern emerges. It is worked flat from the bottom up.
