Happy Homework

It’s harder to get simpler than the classic Knits for Everybody 2 Cardigan. A series of basic short rows provide shoulder shaping and all increases are worked in the yoke over just three increase rows; that’s as complicated as it gets. Advanced beginners will find the instructions accessible, while the overall simplicity makes for clean lines that allow the advanced knitter plenty of room for customization.
