The Lena cardigan has deep pockets and a ribbed shawl collar that neatly hangs open but could be pinned closed. She is as interesting coming as going; the construction causes the back to hang slightly lower than the fronts and works its way up to a high-waisted pleat. She knits up fairly quickly in heavy worsted or aran weight yarn and is nearly seamless.
