Audrey’s Cardigan is a simple, top-down seamless v-neck cardigan knit up in bulky-weight yarn, perfect for teens and adults.

This cardigan features top-down, seamless raglan construction and instructions include options for 3 different body shaping options - no shaping, waist-shaping or A-line shaping. A simple stripe of contrasting color is featured above the hem and cuffs for a little visual interest (although you can add more stripes or omit if you prefer). This is a versatile piece that you can tailor to your own personal style!
