Lady Loose Fitting Cardigan
The Lady Cardigan is knitted on 5 mm needles, it grows quickly and the end result has a fantastic feel and drape. The body of the cardigan is knitted in one piece, hence eliminating the need for side seams. Sleeves are set in and collar is picked up to finish.
An easy garment to dress up or dress down and one that will be worn with pride throughout the colder months. With its fairly basic shape, the Lady cardigan is a great project for the confident knitter looking to start doing colour work.
