A gorgeous cardigan perfect for cosying down during the Winter months!

Knit on circular needles back and forth, you knit from the top down, increasing to create the sleeves and back & side panels. Once you’ve finished knitting the cardigan you have the advanced option of adding a button band. Create button holes and add buttons to finish.

Knit in one block colour or use a glorious range of stripes or remnants yarn to create a real statement piece.
