Descrtiption

This is the ultimate cardigan. It’s stylish, it’s feminine, it’s comfortable, it’s warm, and best of all, it’s easy to make. This is the perfect cardigan for a casual Saturday afternoon date. Wear it shopping, or on a long romantic walk around the lake. You’ll feel perfectly dressed for either occasion. The simplicity of the lines and shaping, especially when made in a neutral color, make it a fantastic cardigan for accessorizing. This cardigan is knit in pieces in linen stitch. While it is a drop shoulder style, the shoulder shaping and the minimal sleeve ease make sure that it still has a flattering fit through the shoulder.
