114 Essential Cardigan

"This elegant cardigan will quickly become your go-to sweater," asserts Dulaney. "All-over double moss stitch gives the fabric a delicate texture, while ribbed cables climb along the front opening and neckline, lending a subtle curve to the bottom edge. The raglan cardigan is knit seamlessly from the bottom up and the cabled front bands continued until they meet at the back of the neck. Wear it open, or close it with a shawl pin for a closer fit." With its stunning lines, alluring waist shaping, carefully mirrored cables, and straightforward-but-detailed construction (the garment is knit completely in one piece from the yoke up), this is one for the ages. Gauge given is over double moss stitch.
