Beaurivage is a very simple but very feminine cardigan with its V-neckline and ruffles on either side of the buttonholes. Knitted in mohair your knitting will be soft and airy.

It is worked top to bottom without seam with raglan armholes. The body is worked back and forth. The slightly puffed sleeves are worked in the round. The ruffles are picked along each edge. The border is work in i-cord and ends with crochet buttonholes.
