Chevi by Anne Hanson
This flattering, tunic length cardigan in nine sizes (XS/S/M/L/1X/2X/3X/4X/5X) has a flared shape below the inset waist with optional short row shaping to create a curving back hem. With a bold openwork back, hem, and lower sleeves, this cardigan draws interest coming and going—it looks sharp and streamlined at the office, but has the
drama to go straight on to evening activities. This piece works up well in both a smooth yarn blend or a slightly fuzzy luxury fiber; in a plant based yarn it would even make a luxuriously stylish robe for bath or poolside.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size and drape.
