This cardigan radiates classic good looks along with warm texture. Smart details such as interrupted rib patterning, saddle shoulders, and a shawl collar add style to the flattering fit shape. Each piece is knit flat and sewn together. The shawl collar is then worked with the remaining live stitches using short row shaping and decreasing to create a lovely fit on the neck. Button holes are worked as you go to keep things neat and simple. The Gabriella Cardigan is sure to become a cozy addition to your attire!
