The elegance and interest of the Decq cardigan lies in its understated box shape and studious neckline. Interlocking cross–hatched departures and forked chevrons dazzle the eye, enriched by the understated smoothness of stockinette sleeves. Delineated by clever, staggered purl stitches, the written and charted pattern repeat roves back and forth in movements both sharp and sinuous. With just enough seams to lend structure, Decq f inishes smoothly with sleeves picked up and knit in the round to the cuff. This cardigan is sure to delight in any setting
