Surprise Cardigan (Free)
The bodice and sleeves of the Surprise Cardigan, a tunic-length V-neck sweater, are worked in a simple, finely textured rib that wraps the wearer in cozy fabric, and a stockinette skirt that flows over the hips and makes them appear slender. The button closure is at empire height creating a bit of drama. Knit using Hikoo Sueño gives the sweater a fabulous feel and drape.
