Alexandria Cardigan


The focus of this classically shaped cardigan is the wide scoopneck topped by a texture and lace band. It is knit in one piece up to the armholes, then separately for the fronts and back. Set-in sleeves are picked up directly from the armholes and worked down to the cuffs to minimize seaming. Pattern designed by Connie Chang Chinchio.
