123 Top Down Lightweight Cardigan

Perfect for summer knitting and wearing, this little cardigan is sure to be a favorite. Knitted with a fingering weight yarn at a loose gauge (24 sts to 4 inches), it won’t take forever to knit. The pattern is seamless, knitted from the top down with a flattering scoop neck, and the knitter’s choice of cap sleeves or short sleeves, one button or a few. Soucy offers a very detailed, illustrated knit-along guide to her top-down sweaters here.

(At last, a gorgeous, top-down, waist-shaped Soucy design just right for any of those precious yarns you've been collecting at retreats and conferences. Or you can knit this cardi in your favorite sock yarn and start a cardi/socks ensemble trend. Front buttonbands are in garter stitch worked with the fronts-- Ed.)
