Product description

An open-front cardigan in Quarry with a dramatic ribbed collar adds a note of cozy chic to your wardrobe. Three-quarter length sleeves balance the volume of the ribbed lapels, which are shaped with short rows worked at the ends of the collar rather than around the neck. Exaggerated drop shoulders create a flattering curve and seam detail at the upper arm. Opt for tubular edges for a professional finish or substitute your favorite standard method for a sweater you can knit up in a flash. The pieces are knit flat and the collar is worked on stitches picked up after seaming.
