Kiss Me Kate
The Kiss Me Kate sweater is a fitted cardigan with a deep V-neckline, raglan 3/4 sleeves, and curved hem that echoes the curves of the collar. The cardigan is knit seamlessly from the top (neck) down and is shaped to the waist and hips with princess seams. It is intended to be worn with 0-2” of negative ease at the bust, but also fits well with a bit of positive ease at the bust.
Knitters wanting a little more coverage at the front may wish to omit the waist shaping as well as the initial decreases at the front edges.
The pattern includes tips for picking up stitches for the trim as well as hints for wrapping and turning (and picking up the wraps) for the short rows that shape the collar.
Because the collar involves short-rows, I recommend this as an “Intermediate” level pattern
