A simple shape lets texture shine with the clever chicken-foot stitch pattern. Slightly lacy with plenty of coverage, this sweater is edged with a single-crochet chain-one pattern to create a minimalist Mandarin collar. The frog closures you make yourself are an elegant finish to this easy-fitting cardigan, worked in a sumptuous blend of alpaca and silk.
