It’s been over two years since I published my very first sweater pattern, I Heart Aran. That design, the one that got me passionate about designing my own knits, is still one of my most popular patterns. How to improve upon a classic? Cardigan-ize it! Pullovers are great, but nothing beats a cozy cardigan. My I Heart Cardigans design borrows the same classic look from I Heart Aran; a shawl collar and set in sleeves, but with switched up cables and a generous button band. If you like aran sweaters, you’ll love this aran cardigan!
