The Home Cardigan Lite is a drop shoulder v neck that buttons up at the front. It is a timeless piece that will keep you cozy and in style during cooler seasons. It is designed to sit right on your hip level in length, but it can easily be made longer because it is constructed from the top down. First you will work the stitches for the back, after that you will work the right shoulder then the left shoulder as well as the front to shape the v neck and the armholes. A few videos are included in the pattern. The cardigan is worked flat and in the round (sleeves) in stockinette stitch and it is framed with the classic rib. 20 to 25 cm / 8” to 10” of positive ease is built in to the pattern, chose a size based on how much ease you prefer.
