Simple elegance is the key to this cardigan - a graceful A-line shape, a beautifully textured collar band, and 3/4 or full length sleeves.
Fronts and back are knit separately from the bottom up and seamed at the sides and shoulders. Stitches for the modified drop sleeves are picked up at the shoulders, knit flat, and seamed. Collar bands are knit along with the fronts and seamed at the back neck.
Intended to be worn with 0-2" of ease. Fronts do not meet at bust.
Gauge: 18sts/24 rows = 4" in stockinette, blocked.
Techniques include decreases, picking up stitches, simple cables, and reading charts. Other techniques (3-needle bind off, sloped bind off) are explained in the pattern.
