The Garden Cardigan is a classic piece that you’ll wear
again and again. Basic stitches make it a great project for
new and experienced garment stitchers alike. The bodice
is composed of single crochet. After seaming, the graceful
lace section is joined at the empire waist and continued
downward, allowing for easy modification of length. The
recommended Koigu yarn offers hundreds of color options, and the tight twist and springiness will highlight the beautiful textures and ensure long life to your new sweater!
