Short Description: This cozy cardigan in eight sizes (XS/S/M/L and 1X through 4X) snuggles you like your favorite blanket. The shawl collar and longer body length will give you pleasant warmth in winter. The cardigan is worked top down with simultaneous set-in sleeve. The stitches for the collar are picked up around the front edge and shaped with short rows. A simple, eye-catching twist-stitch motif on the body is fun to knit and will keep you focused. The light and spongy Kent Worsted yarn lends a comfy and forgiving body to the lace pattern.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, and yardage requirement.
