An easy-fitting, longer cardigan in seven sizes (XS/S/M/L/1X/2X/3X), with slightly-dropped shoulder, gansey neck, and wide center front button bands. Body is knit in a fascinating knit/purl maze pattern, with cable panels accenting side seams and armhole openings; length is easily modified. Cardigan is worked back and forth in one piece to the underarm without shaping, then split to work yoke. Sleeves are knit flat and seamed.
