Inspired by the casual men’s sweater jackets that were popular in the 1950s, this trim cardigan uses placed ribs for fit and knitterly detail. A single-crochet edging around the bottom edge of the body and sleeves prevents the stockinette-stitch edge from rolling, and a zipper up the center front and tidy set-in sleeves give the sweater a clean finish. Knit it in a fiery orange, or, for a more conservative version, try it in a cool blue.
