A distinctive slot pattern creates interest on this ribbed cardigan design.

“My slot rib cardigan uses one-row buttonholes to create an interesting openwork design,” says Emma Vining. “The slots are worked on the upper part of the fronts and back, and they allow any garment worn underneath to show through. The placement of the slots forms an interlinked series of openings which are joined by the rib pattern.
Rib is used for the front bands, with the upper slots forming three buttonholes. The lower part of the fronts and back are worked in a wide rib pattern that runs into the upper slot pattern. The set-in sleeves are also knitted in wide rib.”
