This confortable and full of lovely details cardigan is knitted from the top down, seamless (except for pockets) and short row-less, with a nice tailored shape. You will start knitting on the back, leave on hold and pick up stitches on shoulders for fronts and then for sleeve caps so you’ll be able to knit all the pieces at the same time! Stripes of differents width will spice up this good basic, just like pockets (with stripes inside!), and contrasted hems. Don’t hesitate to customize the number, size or colors of the stripes to get your own unique and personal cardigan! It has quite a straight shaping, boyfriend-ish, but advices are given to help you make a more shaped version.
It is also available in 2 versions, high (starting right after the underarms) or low buttonband, you’ll choose your prefered version (2 different files).
