A simple, cozy cardigan in 10 sizes (XS to L and 1X to 6X) to knit for men and women in worsted weight yarns. Designed with a straight cut from underarm to bottom edge with side slits at the hem, this project is knit flat in portable pieces for structure and lasting good looks. Edges are finished with deliciously textured seed stitch, which continues through the rolled shawl collar and raglan seam detailing. Instructions include an option for a narrow, flat neck finish. Destined to be the favorite everyday sweater in the coldest months, its warm appeal will be amplified when worked in a cushy, natural wool or wool blend.
