Everyone loves the comfort of a hoodie, so Theresa Schabes has reworked the traditional sweatshirt style into a refined form-fitted cardigan. The easy-to-memorize openwork rib is made from dropped stitches, a fun way to put holes in your knitting. Functional sterling silver-plated zippers add a hint of sheen to the creamy cotton/acrylic yarn. Unzip the short zippers inset in the sleeves for flair at the cuffs.
