This is a fun and dramatic cardigan. The long hem and high collar make it a very impressive piece of knitwear. Go ahead, pick a bold color for this one! But pair it with lots of neutrals to show it off at its best. Wear to a nice restaurant, or for a casual window shopping trip downtown. While the techniques required for this garment are simple, it is key to have good finishing skills to ensure the final product has that crisp, structured look.
