An easy knitted cardigan is worked in pieces and seamed. Set-in sleeves and shoulder shaping, along with cropped sleeves and a wide asymmetrical buttonband make for subtle refinement in a simple sweater.

Classic. Timeless. Beautiful. Wouldn't change a thing. The reason I subscribe to Interweave. Cozy but impeccably tailored. The sleeve length is perfect. love the collar and the close fit. Truly essential.
