Bristol Ivy Wainwright PDF
Bristol Ivy's Wainwright is an asymmetric cardigan whose construction takes traditional chevrons for a joy ride. Wainwright is knit flat from the bottom up, starting with two asymmetrical base triangles that are then joined. A button front, raglan sleeves and a cowl neck that can be unbuttoned to form a shawl collar make this a fascinating knit!
