“The colourful garter mosaic yoke of this swingy cardigan is tempered by the silvery grey lace body and sleeves, which keep it from being too sweet,” says designer Amy Gunderson. “The bamboo-cotton blend yarn drapes beautifully, and bubblegum pink garter stitch edgings pull it all together.” The Bamboo Pop yarn from Universal Yarn is available in a good range of shades.
