Magali Cardigan is a simple Fair Isle garment with a top-down raglan construction, paired with a pretty and easy colorwork pattern on the body. It is made with 3 colors of your favorite DK weight yarn, but as it uses such a small yardage, you can also work with leftover yarns, making this project a nice stashbusting idea. You can even make a second one with the same yarn to surprise your kids with a matching cardigan for their dolls and toys! Approved by Miss É and Billy the bunny!
