This simple v-neck cardigan is mostly stockinette stitch with cable details at the hems, bands, and pocket tops. Worked from the hem up in pieces, it’s then seamed, and the bands are knit on. Pockets are placed while knitting the fronts, and need to be tacked down as part of finishing. Though sweater is designed without buttons, they could easily be added, placing the buttonholes between cables on the button band. The same size large sweater is shown on two different models: on the redhead there are 3 inches (7.6 cm) positive ease, and on the brunette there are 7 inches (17.8 cm) positive ease.
