We usually are drawn to accessory-type designs --- including the patterns, yarns, and embellishments for them -- but every now and then a garment design catches my eye and I want to share it. And Maureen Mason-Jamieson does such intriguing designs that they are often her patterns that I can't resist. This is no exception.
In this beauty, bands of slipstitches serenade you in this shaped cardigan. Knit side-to-side with short row shaping at side seams and sleeves. Add a shawl collar, knit with short rows, for a wearable, elegant look.
