The cardigan pattern you’ve been waiting for!

This Waste Not, Want Not cardigan on its own pretty much sold all of our 2022 LADvent calendars! There was such a buzz around it and now we’re making it available to you too. It’s a perfect pattern – each one will be completely unique due to the remnants element.

Each size kit will have 200g of remnants plus a single colour for the main part of the cardigan. The remnants give a beautiful boho vibe to the cardigan and with added bobbles too across the body and sleeves, this cardigan is sure to be a favourite all year round.

The remnants will be a variety of colours but if you do have anything particular in mind (ie, more neutral or big and bright) please let us know when you order and we’ll do our best to accommodate.
