Kristen TenDyke - Grace Cardi

  Grace Cardi  
 

Side-to-side construction makes this cardigan interesting in style and technique. Beginning at the center back, each half of the bodice is worked outward to the sleeve cuff. Stitches for the body are picked up around the lower edge of the bodice and worked downward to the lower edge. The sleeves and lower body are bordered with pearl brioche stitch—one of my favorite patterns for simple texture!

Pattern available in Finish-Free Knits. See all designs in this book.
