Pattern Notes: Photos copyright Jane Heller and used with permission from Twist Collective.

This cute, buttoned cardigan features a crew neck, gentle waist shaping, and set-in sleeves. It gets a preppy twist with a cable-and-lace argyle pattern. Literati is worked from the bottom up in separate pieces and seamed. The back’s argyle motif is large-scale, showing off this lovely figure feature; the front argyle panels are smaller, and nicely set off the button band. The cable pattern is given in chart form only, and the cardi is trimmed with 2×2 rib.

Its strong vertical lines and narrow neckline makes a flattering sweater for many body types. The sleeves may be easily lengthened or shortened, as can the body of the sweater, to achieve a flattering look. It uses vertical darts for waist shaping and can be easily modified for your individual needs.

Literati is available for purchase through Twist Collective.
