The long, strong vertical lines, roomy proportions, and jacket-type lapel give this woman's ribbed cardigan a subtle masculine feeling. The yarn, a cotton-acrylic blend from Tahki, knits up at just over five stitches to the inch, making this a fairly quick project. The buttons are made from tagua nuts, which are derived from a type of palm tree.
