The Libertas Cardigan is a fun way to play with colour in your crochet. You can make yourself a wonderfully versatile cardigan very quickly with the Libertas pattern. Even an adventurous beginner could make this cardigan!
This pattern works just as well made in cotton for a Summer/Spring cardigan, as it does in wool for a Winter/Autumn cardigan.
The pattern comes in 8 different sizes, so everyone is covered!
The Libertas pattern is written in both U.S. crochet terms and British/Australian crochet terms, you will receive both files, just choose the one that suits your needs.
