Persephone Cardigan with Peplum Knitting Pattern
The classic shape of the Persephone Cardigan is instantly enhanced with the peplum detail, textured stripes, 3/4 length sleeves and button front.
Persephone was originally designed as a confidence building garment for the novice knitter; it is knitted in one piece so there is little finishing needed and the knitting techniques to make this include: knit and purl stitches and the knitted cast on.
Seeing your product, your shop and the knowledgeable passionate staff which presented yesterday was definitely a highlight. A breath of fresh air. Leona V
