Twig is a cropped, very quick, fitted little cardigan perfect for warm weather. The design features clean lines, garter rib for edgings and tiny lace panels to embellish the lower body and the sleeves. The body of the sweater is worked seamlessly, from the bottom up to the armholes. The sleeves are worked separately and then joined with the body. The yoke is worked in one piece to the neckline, using raglan decreases and short rows to shape the back neck for a perfect fit. The cardigan is intended to be worn with zero or little negative ease at the chest.
