Persephone Cardigan Knitting Kit
Persephone is a delightful cardigan with textured stripes, 3/4 length sleeves and button front. The classic shape is instantly enhanced with the fabulous elongated hem which creates a panel detail at the front and gathered skirt effect at the back.
Persephone is one of those garments that has the ‘wow’ factor in it’s construction! Originally designed as an item ideally suited to the confident novice, Persephone becomes an accomplished, professional looking cardigan very easily. Knitted in one piece there is little finishing needed, so you can soon wear this with confidence and style.
Seeing your product, your stall and the knowledgeable passionate staff which presented yesterday was definitely a highlight. A breath of fresh air. Leona V
