This richly patterned cardigan is warm and cozy to wear on winter days whilst strolling around the palace gardens.
Adoris is knit in the round from the top down in stranded colourwork and then steeked to give the cardigan opening, with borders picked up and knitted after.

A soft snowflake yoke transfigures into the charm of hearts and fleurs, combined with gentle shaping.

Adoris is a pattern from Beautiful Knits for Beautiful Sticks book
