Winterfolk Cardigan

This coat was inspired by winter, snow, ancient forests and wood fires. It is worked from the top down, seamlessly, with a very flattering shoulder construction and overlapping fronts. The body is carefully shaped, making sure that the increases are perfectly tailored around the body and resemble those of your favorite wool coat. Because it has an A-line shape, it fits perfectly any kind of figure. Even knitters who usually add some stitches to the hips of their coats will find that that’s not necessary with Winterfolk. 
The hood has generous proportions to allow to put it on and take it off easily. There is only one cable panel to follow, repeated 3 times (twice in the front and once in the back). Since the pattern is worked from the top-down, length can easily be adjusted from a jacket style to any length you like.
