The delightful details of Joplin, a cardigan/vest, make it a piece that easily transitions from work to play. Cascading front panels, a wide ribbing at the hem, and a fascinating, reversible stitch texture at side edges and collar, and your choice of sleeve style (long-sleeved or sleeveless) Joplin is engaging to knit and so fun to style.
Created by the Shibui Design Team, Joplin was knit in sport-weight Shibui Twig.

Joplin is a generously shaped waterfall cardigan or vest with a wide ribbing at the hem and a subtly undulating reversible texture at side edges and collar. Joplin is worked flat in one piece from the bottom up, then split at the armholes for back and fronts. A wide collar is worked over the joined fronts and back. Optional full length sleeves are worked flat from the cuff up, then set in and seamed. Fabric may bias while knitting, but will block square to measurements.
