The Cabo Cardi is a fitted cardigan that works beautifully as a transitional piece on mild spring days to cool nights at the beach. A vining lace pattern travels up the cardigan and a drawstring is pulled through a row of eyelets along to waist to create a comfortable fit with ease.
The Cabo Cardigan is knit in one piece from the back hem to the beginning of the neckline, then split and both front sides are worked separately. Once the main knit piece is completed, its folded in half and the side seams are sewn together. The cardigan is worked without shaping as the drawstring will pull in the waist.
