Dreamy Oversized Cardigan Kit

Designed to keep you beautifully cosy as well as staying right on trend, this slouchy cardigan will slot perfectly into your year-round wardrobe. Wear around the BBQ on the cooler summer evenings, or keep toasty warm during winter, this cardigan can be dressed up or dressed down. Such a fashion staple and using the softest, dreamiest Merino wool there will be no itchy skin even when worn over a vest top. 

The cardigan has a subtle rib down each edge as well as the bottom, neckline and cuffs and slowly tapers in at the front. The sleeves are designed to be full length or you can fold the ribbed cuff over to make them three-quarter length. 

Suitable for sizes 6-22, this cardigan will look perfect over short-shorts and a tee, or draped over your polo neck and jeans. Choose the colour you love the most and prepare yourself to never take this off!! Choose one of the gorgeous neutral yarns which will go with everything, or why not be brave and go for a bright statement colour pop?! I can't wait to see what you decide... once you have the pattern and the needles, you can make as many as you like for yourself or your BFF!

This kit is simple enough for a confident beginner, but is also enjoyable for those more experienced knitters - using basic stitches of knit and purl with a small amount of shaping. 

Your kit comes beautifully packaged in one of our environmentally friendly LAD bags. Perfect for keeping your knitting project all in one place and once you finish your knitting you can then use your bag to store and organise toys, accessories or use as a travel bag.  

Once knitted up you can hand wash your cardigan and simply lay it flat to dry.

I now have a Facebook group for those of you who have bought a kit or pattern from me, so please do come and show me your knits!
