The Cabled Mustard Knit Cardigan Pattern just screams "intellectual chic," with its classic button-down design and universally flattering color. A sampling of cables and bobbles are utilized throughout this rather chunky knit cardigan pattern, so you're very unlikely to grow bored while you knit. Furthermore, since the pattern allows for a bit of positive ease, it's neither too showy nor uncomfortable for an office or school setting. Try adding a bit of personal flair to this cardigan by using uniquely-shaped buttons, or buttons of a complementary color.
