Mongkok Cardigan

An easy-to-wear cardigan in a classic shape. The textured bib gives interest and provides a feminine detail that isn't too fussy. For a cold weather top, knit this in wool. For a warmer weather top, or a layering piece, silk or a silk blend would be beautiful.

The pictures show the 34” / 86cm size worn with no ease. If you want this as a layering piece, you may want to knit a size with an inch or two of ease.
