SHORT-SLEEVE CARDI
SHORT-SLEEVE CARDI 

Knit Simple Magazine Winter 2013 #20

Design by Nicky Epstein

Take a basic shape (a boxy button-front cardi), add a little embellishment (knit leaves on an I-cord stem) and voilà—a knockout layering piece. Patch pockets, asymmetrical ribbed borders and a fold-back collar keep things interesting. The “hands” buttons are fromthe Nicky Epstein button collection.
