Basix 108 Bristol Top-Down Cardigan PDF
The Bristol Top-Down Cardigan is comfortable and easy to wear, making it a great layering piece to add to your wardrobe. The waist and hips are shaped to flatter, and the tie below the bust reinforces your shape. The ribbed bands begin at the center back neck with a provisional cast-on and continue down the fronts with sections split off to create integrated ties. This would also make a lovely coat, and since it’s worked seamlessly from the top down, just keep knitting until you get to the perfect length for you!
