This is a basic cardigan , designed by Thea Colman, has several options.
A subtle smocked pattern adds a little texture to the neckline if worn closed, and serves as a border if the fronts are left to hang open. It can be pinned up, pinned across, pinned at the center, belted, thrown over a shoulder, or left to hang.
This design balances a drapey shape with a little structure, as I was trying to knit a loose and flowy cardigan that wouldn’t overwhelm a small or curvy frame. It’s fitted through the shoulders, short in the body and has a little bit of shaping above the waist.
