Constructed from the top down this classic cardigan has three different body shaping options – straight, waist-shaping, or A-line shaping. Add a thin contrasting stripe around the hem and the sleeve cuffs for a pop of color or more if you’re into it. Use Bulky weight yarn, US 10 needles, and 4 buttons to make your new favorite sweater.
