MANOS DEL URUGUAY
The Kashima sweater from Manos del Uruguay is a stunning open-front cardigan that is easy to knit and flattering for many body types. The long, drapey fronts make sizing easy and very forgiving, while the lace detail at the cuffs of the set-in sleeves create a very feminine bell shape. A note about fabric and construction: The body of this garment is knitted sideways, and the fabric is very stretchy and will drape 1-2” longer in back when worn. You may choose any length that is appropriate and cast on the number of sts indicated for that length; for all other measurements, follow the numbers for desired bust measurement.
