Woodfords is a delicious puzzle in seamless construction, sure to appeal to knitters who love inventive shapes and new approaches. Decorative lateral braids highlight directional shifts in the knitting and also add structure to an elastic fabric of broken and seeded rib. Short rows cleverly concealed in the textured fabric produce a comfortable fit at the shoulders and sleeve caps. Woodfords is a garment you can throw on over casual outfits or dress up for work. Choose a size close to your actual bust measurement if you prefer a trimmer silhouette, keeping in mind that dimensions are given with the fronts overlapped and the cardigan will be roomier when left to hang open. Styled here with about two inches of ease.
