This lovely cardigan was inspired by the classic vintage beaded sweaters that were so popular in the 1950s, with their close fit and extra tall ribbings. The knitting is very simple; the tonal yarn and sparkly beads do most of the
work for you!

The beads for the meandering vines on the fronts are pre-strung and knitted in. The cardigan also features set-in sleeves, and button/buttonhole bands that are picked up and knit after the fronts are finished.
