A wide garter-stitch shawl collar wraps all around and behind to form a peplum in this cardigan with a pretty "scales" stitch pattern and raglan shaping. Easy (no wraps) short rows within the garter stitch collar and border provide shaping and add a stylish design element. Cable decreases add a nice detail to the raglan shaping. Worked in one piece from the bottom.
