Glacier Cardigan Knitting Kit
Glacier is a seriously warm winter jacket made especially for our Chunky yarn. It is much easier to make than it looks and with thick yarn and big needles – it’ll grow quickly and be ready to wear faster than you’d think. The top of the body and sleeves are made in one piece which is later attached to the bottom of the body. With the moss stitch edging and fabulous collar, Glacier will be a highly versatile garment which will quickly become a favourite.
