This cocoon style cardigan is built like a warm hug. With an elaborate cable at the back and a generous shawl collar in front, it is perfect for wrapping up in on chilly autumn mornings. The modular construction means you only have to focus on one element of the pattern at a time.
This cardigan is worked mostly in the modular fashion. First the back cable is worked from the bottom up. The sides are worked by picking up stitches from the sides of the cable panel and working outward toward the sleeve cuffs. Stitches for the ribbed lower edging are picked up from the body and worked downward. Stitches for the collar are worked from held cable panel stitches and picked up from the body, then worked outward.
