252 Bulky Neckdown Cardigan for Women

Soucy: "A fast to knit cardigan written at 13 stitches to 4 inches using bulky yarn. Directions are given for knitting with a hood or collar, and for a zipper or button band closing. Sizes small to xx-large."

We calculate that there are four possible variations of this pattern and if you make one in each size, that's 48 options before you even start to consider the yarns available!

Soucy offers a very detailed, illustrated knit-along guide to her top-down sweaters here.
