Classic rib trim is combined with knit-and-purl texture to create a sophisticated, yet relaxed cardigan. Wear it with jeans or dress it up to suit your mood. With only two seams to sew, this is one design for the minimalist in all of us. The body is worked in one piece to the armholes, shoulders are joined using three-needle bind off, and the sleeves are worked in the round to the underarm.
