Islette from Winged Knits is a cropped cardigan that may be worn 3 ways- fully closed and buttoned behind the neck, buttoned with the single button in front and left drapey, or unbuttoned with the fronts allowed to flow open. The body is worked from the bottom up and the sleeves are knit by picking up and working short row sleeve caps and are then knit down in the round. The simple construction and lace panels make for a fun and easy knit. Shepherd Sport allows for the perfect drape and texture.
