A little cardigan is absolutely key in my wardrobe! Knit from the top down and full of texture with easy to master colorwork motifs this sweater is hard to put down! Worked in the round and then steeked open at the end - this project will take your knitting to the next level! Perfect for layering and styling into a plethora of outfits for say - a fun weekend at a fiber festival! Rhinebeck’s NY Sheep & Wool anyone??
