Short Description: The Delancey Cardigan has a vintage feel with its striking chevron stripe motif and elegant shawl collar. Sections of thin diagonal stripes accentuate the sweater’s unusual zig-zag construction. Slanting stripes, in combination with the long sleek fit, make this a flattering design. The body is knitted flat in one large piece on circular needles. There is a short seam at the top of each shoulder to add a bit of structure. The set-in sleeves are worked from the top down from stitches picked-up around the armhole. Then, stitches are picked up around the front opening to form the front band and shawl collar.
