Everyone needs one great cardigan that features exquisite detail and shaping. Even the most basic cardigan can go from practical to chic with creative pattern stitches. The Alta Vista Cardigan, designed by Lidia Karabinech, showcases her signature design aesthetic, transforming basic to a tailor-made, must-have piece.

String Yarns Alta Vista Cardigan

For those of you that fluctuate between hot, then not, a cardigan is the best type of sweater to carry with you throughout the day and when traveling. Take it off, put it on, button it up; on, off, you know the drill. A versatile button up cardigan is so much better than an over the head sweater or a jacket. 

To make this a fun, and quicker knit, the sleeves are knitted together with the body. This technique works extremely well with the selected stitch pattern and creates a stylish, horizontal upper panel, which allows the garment to look magnificent with the buttons worn in the front OR in the back! 

Very specific choices were made concerning cast on, shoulder shaping, button bands, collar, and other distinctive details to create a basic cardigan that is in no way, basic. Knit the Alta Vista Cardigan with our exclusive Classica DK cashmere for clean and crisp stitch detail. 

Every String Yarns design we create should wear like a custom fit piece, incorporating couture details so that you can be sure your hand knitted garment fits you perfectly.
