Feminine smock stitch detailing makes the Peanut Butter Cardigan a standout for everyday wear. This unique design is worked from side to side, creating a stretchy fabric that hugs your body in all the right places. Post stitches worked over alternating rows of single and double crochet form the figure-flattering smocking. The button band and edging are added after the piece is seamed, and you can make yours simple or fanciful, depending on your taste.
