This lightweight, drop shoulder cardigan in three sizes (S-M/L-2X/3X-5X) with an oversized fit is so soft, comfy, and versatile that it can be worn indoors or out, alone over loungewear or layered over jeans and boots. The fit works well for women and men alike; an allover knit/purl texture and cabled details lend visual substance to an otherwise airy fabric with flattering drape. Constructed from flat knit, portable pieces in easy to learn patterns, this addictive knit is an engaging deep winter or summer vacation project.
