Crosscurrents by Yumiko Alexander is sure to become a favorite.

The body and sleeves of this cardigan are knit without any shaping. So, you can focus and enjoy creating a unique knitted fabric. The Body stitch pattern is a combination of stockinette stitch and a lace pattern, and the lace pattern sections vary in width, creating an asymmetrical look.

This pattern gives you a choice of chest and length. The photos show one top in the regular fit with longer length and another top with oversized fit with shorter length. Different combinations of chest and length give totally different looks. You can wear it closing fronts with a button if you prefer.
