Ballet Wrap Cardigan - Katy Ryan

When she's working up a sweater design for a novelty yarn, the designer tries to keep things simple; she wants the yarn, not the stitch or details, to tell the story. She's partial to the smooth lines of fitted wrap styles because they're adjustable and fit a variety of figures. Even more important, she likes easy knitting as well as easy shapes and would rather knit a pair of long ties than fiddle with buttons and buttonholes.
