Experienced cardigan with side-to-side seamless yoke construction. A band of cables, shaped with short-rows, curves around the yoke. Short sleeves, moss stitch, and a tweedy worsted weight make for a classic layering piece.

Note to Knitter:There is no error in the collar. The pattern as written in Knitscene Winter/Spring 2010 will produce a lovely finished garment, but the collar across all sizes may not look exactly the same. The designer has come up with alternate ways to work it and has independently published these modifications on ravelry.com; however, Interweave stands by our published pattern. Side note: The designer is redesigning this project with an alternate collar for another publication. IW will make that collar treatment available to readers; however, the revised pattern won't be available for a few months.
