Description
This cardigan fits an intricate slip-stitch and intarsia pattern into the yoke of a very simple silhouette for a cardigan that looks much more complicated than it is. Annie Modesitt uses a cleverly planned stripe sequence and simple ribbing to create a precisely tailored fit that's quick to knit and easy to wear.
