What could be better than a quick & cute cardigan for winter? This beautiful vintage-style cropped cardi features a reverie of cushy rib, easy stockinette and cute turned collar, i-cord closure and puffy sleeves.

Make it in a beautiful DK yarn to showcase its colors - The Mulberry Dyer Wensleydale DK is a woolly-woolly yarn, with a rustic touch that offsets the classic figure of this cardigan.

The construction is fun too - from the bottom up, the body is created in one piece to the armholes and then separated for fronts and back. Button bands are added straight away, and while the body blocks, you can make your sleeves. While those block, add the collar and finishing touches, and before you know it, you’ll have a cardigan on your hands!
