A versatile cardigan, spiced up or down by choosing color and buttons, worked in the very essence of knitting, the very wearable stockinette stitch. Simple at first glance, this cardigan is for the perfectionist knitter. All edges are made with tubular cast on and bind off, creating beautiful edges. The shoulders are worked as a variant of a seamless set in sleeve. Details like the slightly cropped and buttoned sleeves and the narrow neckline ribbing makes this a very feminine cardigan with an edge.
