I love working a simple stitch detail into an otherwise unadorned sweater. In this little cardi, worked sideways to center front and back, a little fan motif on the garter stitch cuffs flows into a pair of purl ribs that extend to the neckline. The pieces end at the center back with a few rows of garter stitch to create a vertical panel. I joined the pieces with a three-needle bind off, but you could graft them, if you prefer. The collar, more simplicity, is picked up and worked in garter stitch.
The sample shown was knit in Lark by Quince & Co. shade Clay.
Gauge: 18 sts and 24 rows = 4" in stockinette stitch.
