CALTANISSETTA - a lovely short or long waistcoat or sleeveless cardigan in DK-weight wool in an elegant but casual design in columns of garter stitch altering wide plaits. The textured surface gives the garment a handsome rustic look. The cables running up mid front and round the sleeve-gabs are crossed differently each side. The collar in garter st gives a nice finish to the cardigan.
The cardigan is supposed to stay open - rather wide open. Worked flat. Written pattern with charts. An enjoyable work.
