Teresa

Terasa is a long-sleeved cardigan with a deep v-neckline. Worked in 2 colors (a main color and trim), its overall stitch pattern is the seeded rib check, a simple alternating knit/purl sequence, that is dense and springy. 4 buttons provide front closure. Horizontal pockets, positioned just below the waist, are lined with the trim color. No blocking required as this fabric lies flat and stays true to gauge. Pieces are knit flat, bottom-up, with seaming. Sleeves are set in.
