Slender cables outline a bit of cabled fagot lace that borders the front edges of this V-neck cardigan. The front bands and collar are picked up and worked in an easy garter stitch; and a clever stair-step bind off along the collar creates a subtle picot effect. Simple styling,a waist bordered by a deep rib, and sleeves that finish with a neat bind-off edging keep the focus on the stitch details. All the design elements come together in a hand-dyed, wool/alpaca blend.
