Bunny Slopes Cardigan

a short row starter



Not every snow bunny wants to conquer the big slopes. Some little ladies like to take things slow and learn the fundamentals. This cardigan is knit from the bottom up using a simple set-in sleeve method. When the body is complete, the shawl collar is picked up and worked back and forth in garter stitch. The gently rolling slopes along the edge of the collar are created using a fun short row pattern for a dramatic, snuggly look. This cardigan is great for any knitter who wants to have fun without breaking a sweat. Want a little challenge, but not too much? Let’s hit the bunny slopes.
