With its lined pockets and mock-middy collar, Cecily’s comfortable cardigan is one you’ll want to have at the ready, whether you’re going out or staying in. The sculptural slant cables – placed on Front, Back, Collar and Sleeves – add interest and balance, creating a classic and wearable style. Body and sleeves are worked in the round to the underarm, keeping finishing to a minimum, so you can do less seaming and more wearing!

  • Body is worked first, in one piece, from the bottom up. Fronts and Back are divided at the underarm and worked separately for the remainder of pattern.
  • You will divide for pocket openings as you work the body, returning to work pocket linings during finishing.
  • Sleeves are worked second, in the round, from bottom up. Stitches are bound off at the underarm and sleeve cap is worked back and forth to end.
  • After shoulders are joined together, Collar is worked from remaining live stitches of Fronts and Back. Collar will maintain pattern as established in body throughout.
