The Delancey Cardigan has a vintage feel with its striking chevron stripe motif and elegant shawl collar. Sections of thin diagonal stripes accentuate the sweater's unusual zig-zag construction. Slanting stripes, in combination with the long sleek fit, make this a flattering design.
The body is knitted back and forth in one large piece on circular needles then divided to form the armholes. There is a seam at the top of each shoulder. Stitches for the set-in sleeves are picked up around the armhole and knitted from the top down. Stitches for the collar are also picked up along the edge, and short rows form the shawl collar.
Instructions are included for sizes 33" - 58" finished bust circumference.
