Traditional top down saddle shoulder construction for this cardigan is used in a novel way to create this elegant cardigan. A variety of cabled aran stitch patterns are used to embellish while shaping the silhouette. Twisted ribbed trim adorning the neckline, facings and hems, hidden pockets and oversized fit make this an all season jacket that can be dressed up or down.

Cardigan is worked from the top down with a traditional saddle drop shoulder construction.

The back lattice cable panel calls for cable crossings on both right and wrong side rows. Don’t panic; the pattern is very regular and easier to follow than it looks at first glance, and the wrong-side crossings are all basic 2 over 2 cables.

Note that some of the other charts begin on a right side row, and some begin on a wrong side row, but only the back panel has cable crossings on the wrong side.
