298 Top Down Shawl Collar Cardigan

Says Soucy: "An easy to knit worsted weight cardigan, written for a gauge of 18 stitches to 4 inches, Finished measurements 33 to 53 inches. Has optional side shaping, 2x2 rib collar and garter stitch edgings. Yarn shown is River Twist by Mountain Colors." We were thrilled to see that, instead of specifying a specific number (like 478) of stitches to pick up around the neck, Soucy gives a simple guideline and leaves the exact number up to you. This approach can be revelatory if you've never used it before, and is a great way to finish off a lovely garment like this.

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