With the Caroline cardigan, I’ve aimed for a feminine feel with modern versatility. A simple raglan with a slightly slouchy shape and low V-neck speaks to a vintage sensibilty that could readily be styled with well-laundered retro dresses and square, collarless blouses. Hemmed picot neck, sleeve and buttonband edges dress up jeans and T-shirts.
A simple open stitch pattern creates an airy layering piece that’s perfect between seasons, particularly when worked in a tender yarn like Millamia Naturally Soft Merino.

V-neck cardigan is worked seamlessly from the top down using raglan shaping. Lower edge, cuffs, button and buttonhole bands are hemmed with a serrated edge that incorporates after-thought buttonholes.
