Kaizen


Pattern Information

Kaizen
Designed by Amy Gunderson

PATTERN NOTES
Kaizen is a classic cardigan that is all about the details. Staggered Eyelet Columns run up body and sleeves, transitioning to stockinette for flattering lines. Pleated cuffs at the end of three-quarter length sleeves add a touch of femininity and the opportunity to learn a new technique.

Check out the Universal Yarn blog for a photo tutorial on knitting the pleats featured in these cuffs.
This cardigan is knit from the bottom up in pieces with raglan shaping.
