This cozy cabled cardigan is designed for those crisp autumn mornings when you need just a little something to take the chill off. Wear the shawl collar up to keep the cold off your neck or fold it down as the day warms up. Smooth leather buttons perfectly offset the rustic tweed flecks of this yarn.
The cardigan is worked in pieces from the bottom up. The back, fronts, and sleeves are knit separately. The collar is worked after the shoulder seams are joined, then the sleeves are set in and the seaming is completed.
