Santa Monica Cardigan knitting pattern by Holli Yeoh | Garter Stitch Revival

Santa Monica Cardigan

Knit in a luxurious merino−cashmere blend, this flowy cardigan is both elegant and playful. The garter stitch back wraps around the sides and merges into a staggered pattern that flows into stockinette. The result is a lovely, undulating front edge.
