What is your favorite structured cardigan or sweater?

Hello! So far, I’ve knitted four garments, each of which is very boxy (at least on the sides, the cardigans have some shaping for the button band). There is no waist shaping, no german short rows on the back neck (I think this is often where folks use german short rows). I’d really like to learn how to knit a more “structured/shaped” garment.

I’d love to see your favorite patterns that use any technique to create a non-box shape :grinning:

I have these 2 in my favorites on Ravelry.


This designer puts a lot of shaping into her designs because she has a sewing/tailoring background:

Some of her designs are a bit complex, but she has simpler ones as well. She often includes bust shaping.

Oh, and Amy Herzog has nice designs with waist shaping. You can find her designs on Ravelry, from Interweave Knits, and she has a couple of books too.
