Diane Soucy

for Knitting Pure and Simple   2013

1302 Top Down Drape Front Cardigan

"A soft drapey cardigan knit with DK weight yarn at a gauge of 20 sts to 4 inches," explains Soucy. "The yarn shown is Classic Shades Sequins Lite by Universal Yarns, a yarn with sparkle. The cardigan can look as dressy or as casual as the knitter wants, depending on the yarn used." Here, as always, is the logic of top-down knitting rendered in Soucy's uniquely encouraging and friendly prose. And for one of the most popular cardigan styles of the last ten years! While you can, of course, adjust the sleeve in any way you wish, this happens to be one of our absolute favorite lengths. Bonus: as usual, completely seamless. Soucy offers a very detailed, illustrated knit-along guide to her top-down sweaters here.

This is a best selling cardigan from 2013.
