I’ve seen this type of cardigan in many places – but none had the variety of simple elements I wanted in something I wanted to wear ALL THE TIME!

The RONCO CARDI! Set it and Forget IT!!!

Put it on and just go forth in chic array…


My Essential Details

Collar, Cuffs & Bottom: 4×4 Chunky Rib gives just enough texture to slightly ripple the landscape.

Ease: big enough to go over a blouse, but fitted enough to flatter the shape.

Almost Hidden Buttonband: I like the option of wearing this *wrapped & tied* without buttoning or more formally as buttoned-down and ready

Semi-Narrow Tie: not too bulky and anchored with swell Belt Loops on the side of the Cardi…

Overall: as plain and delicious as bread and butter…

    “as plain and delicious as bread and butter”. You’ve got that right, B-Marie. It’s perfect. I’m really hoping you’ll share this one with us – one way or another.

    You are so in tune. I have been trying to find a pattern for a cardi like this for ages and haven’t found anything I really love, you are amazing and you can bet I’ll have one on my needles as soon as possible.
