This is a classic design for a v-neck cardigan with set-in sleeves and contrast color pockets. Knitting the sweater with Cloudborn’s fingering weight twisted wool creates a lightweight, but cozy cardigan, great for layering and when you want something warm without a lot of bulk. This pattern does employ some short-row shaping for the neck and shoulders, and it is knit from the top down. The button band that travels all the way around the sweater boasts an i-cord bind-off for a professional finish.
