How stunning! The Ravishing Rose Knit Cardigan Pattern is ideal for the ultra-feminine woman who exudes an elegant beauty. The garter stitch border on the collar helps keep the stockinette body from curling, which is knit sideways, giving the stockinette portion a unique flair. This easy knit cardigan pattern is made using classic worsted weight yarn, so if you have a handful of balls of the same color lying around, it's a great way to turn them into something beautiful. We love the rose color but think this would also look chic in black.

It is a nice pattern. Consider your comfort though before making it up. I bought a similar garment made up and had to return it to the shop because the weight in the front was heavy on the back of my neck.

The yarn information is missing from this pattern, I had to go to yarnspirations to get the info. It's a yarn called Sugarbush Rapture yarn.
