This casual, shawl-collared cardigan in 10 sizes (XS to L and 1X to 6 X) features a chain link motif, accented by a richly ribbed collar and hems. The texture is highlighted equally well in a cozy, wooly yarn or a smooth blend as shown. The garment is knit from the hem up in portable pieces, with a choice of two body lengths. The shaped collar and button bands are incorporated into the construction, minimizing the finishing work involved.
