$10.00 USD

Meet Toni, the Cocoknits Method version of our popular Antonia/Antonio pattern. It's a V-Neck cardigan with customization options galore! There are two types of incorporated button bands (Version A: garter, Version B: rib), two types of color-blocking, two types of pockets (Version A: knitted as you go, Version B incorporated with bottom front ribbing), and two different lengths. Pick and choose the parts you like to make it your own!

Directions for optional bust darts using short-row shaping are written into the pattern. The bust darts help keep the lines from riding up so the color blocking remains horizontal and gives a bit more ease on the cardigan Fronts. With endless variations, get ready to knit this pattern more than once.
