Titus Adrift

For those cool evenings this soft, airy, elegant draped cardigan will keep you warm and stylish. Knit from the top down, this cardigan has long front panels which are designed to either hang down to form a cascading front or be pinned across the front like a shawl.
A fingering weight version of the popular Adrift pattern, this version is faster to knit and just that little bit warmer!
Full details are given for both short and 3/4 length sleeves.
