This circular yoke cardigan is knit seamlessly from the top-down. This cropped, fitted silhouette pairs especially well with high-waisted bottoms, or layered over a summery dress. You’ll love knitting the subtle bobbles sprinkled through two rows, adding a fun pop of texture to the yoke of your sweater. The matching ribbing around the neckline, collar, bottom hem, and sleeve cuffs brings a touch of sophistication to this otherwise simple piece. Designed with a classic fit, this versatile cropped cardigan looks great on folks of all shapes and sizes and can be easily paired with your existing wardrobe.
