Neptune: Child’s Cardigan Knitting Kit
Neptune is a super cute “Mini-Me” version of Drambuie and the design is one of Kari-Helene’s favourites as a toddler/child’s cardigan. The traditional style with contemporary detailing (particularly the basket weave pattern) creates a stylish and tactile garment that works equally well for a little girl as well as little boy. We’ve added the recycled mussel shell buttons to add that certain chic. Neptune is written with the buttons doing up right over left, however intermediate knitters can swap this over if they so wish.
