Sweet and simple is the best way to describe this top-down, raglan cardigan. Designed with bouncy yarn with good stitch definition in mind, Anouk features deep bands of garter stitch and diamond motifs made up out of seed stitch. The yoke of the sweater is knit first seamlessly, and the sleeves are divided from the body and put on hold. Once the body is completed, the sleeves are picked back up and knit down. The sweater fits best with 0-3 inches of negative ease.
