294 Summer Open Cardigan (Top Down)

Soucy: "A nice coverup for dresses and tank tops, this fitted cardigan is open in the front (about a 3 inch gap) and is knitted on large needles with worsted weight yarn at a very loose gauge-- 14 sts to 4 inches. The edges are 2x2 rib.

"The finished measurements include a 3 to 4 inch gap in the front. If you would like the cardigan to have a larger gap, make a smaller size."

(This is a magnificent design, very simple and versatile, that would show beautifully in just about any yarn style imaginable-- Ed.)

This is Patternfish's Best Selling Cardigan of 2013.
