What do you get when you cross a shrug with a cardigan? This uniquely constructed women’s cardi offers the best of both worlds. In Valley Yarns cotton-wool blend Granville, the soft hand and saturated palette make this a summer wardrobe staple. In a popular Missoni-esque chevron pattern that flows both sideways and vertically to flatter all figures, this piece will be a workhorse in every knitter’s closet.
