This is a cardigan that is worked sideways on the bodice first with short rows for fit and you can try it on as you go to customize to your body. The cable pattern is beautiful and I just love how it looks. The yarn is a dream to work with and drapes wonderfully. I loved working on this project and it went by so quickly :)

My inspiration for this was based on Jane and her sister Cassandra so every stitch within has a meaning related to their relationship. I pulled from the BBC version of Sense and Sensibility and the mini Jane’s Regrets. Thank you, Amy Clarke Moore with Interweave, Christa Tippmann the photographer and Jane Austen Knits :)

Choose the size nearest your bust size without going over - this is meant to be fitted at the bust with the v-opening you will have plenty of ease.
