Spring is just around the corner. What better way to welcome the change in seasons than with a darling little cardigan! It will be just right for the surprises that spring weather always brings. Neon is designed in Plucky Sweater yarn and features a top down construction, using the Contiguous method. That means that there is no need to worry about seaming!
Neon has just enough textured stitch pattern to keep this charming cardigan interesting for the more advanced knitter, but is not too complex for an advanced beginner.
ith just enough waist shaping and some deep ribbing, this sweet sweater will help to awaken your feminine side. Knit it in an intensely bright color to create a modern gem, or achieve a soft delicate heirloom piece by using a gentle neutral.
