An attractive draped cardigan that suits any shape. Worked from the top down in one piece. The pattern includes 2 versions that differ only in the way the edges are made. The EASY VERSION requires knowledge of basic CO on and BO methods. The I-CORD VERSION produces a more polished edge, and uses i-cord CO and i-cord BO for all edges. Instructions for both are provided in the pattern.
Choose a dk or sport weight yarn that has a recommended gauge of 22-24 sts/10 cm, and drapes well for example, contains some silk, bamboo or alpaca.
