Amy King adds flair to this straightforward zip-front cardigan by working dropped stitches at equal intervals across the bell sleeves and fold-over collar. The front edge is trimmed
with I-cord and fastens with a zipper. Says Amy, “There’s something so enjoyable about dropping stitches on purpose.”
