This comfortable Dolman cardigan is simplicity at its best. Worked in Garter Stitch with Seed Stitch trim, Acadia is worked in three separate pieces and seamed together to provide structure to the lofty fabric. Dolman sleeves are shaped directly from side of body by way of casting on groups of stitches along the edge of your fabric. Finished with natural wood buttons, this is the perfect cardigan for relaxing on Sunday morning.
