As I was knitting this cardigan I realised the colours I had chosen where the same as my senior high school colours, this had me reminiscing about my childhood, Kepple St. was just around the corner from me in the town I grew up in and was where the best café’s and shops could be found. The cardigan is a top-down raglan cardigan knit in fingering weight, fairly simple in construction with the stripes keeping it interesting. It is the perfect throw on over anything light layer cardigan.
