Rodin Cardigan

Cardigan Knitting PatternThe Rodin Cardigan by Michele Wang is featured in Interweave Knits Fall 2016. The pattern can be purchased on its own or with the magazine.

The different textures of garter stitch, along with the cable-lace collar, make the open Rodin Cardigan fun to knit and easy to wear. The shorter sleeve length gives a layered look more interest. Pair it with a cuffed shirt with the sleeves rolled up or a long-sleeve T-shirt.
