Contented Cardigan Pattern

"A fun knit with a sweet detail in back."

This drapey, open-front cardigan has a surprise cable detail in the back that can be placed high or low. We have enjoyed knitting it out of Blue Sky Alpacas Melange. Even in a relatively warm yarn, this sweater can get three-season wear because of the shorter sleeves.
