The Red Letter Day cardigan is our sixth and final pattern by Fiona Ellis in our 2015 Designer in Residence series! Knit in Valley Yarns Northampton, this cardigan goes to great lengths for style. The lower section ribbed pattern slowly morphs into a panel of cables that include the magical-looking closed loops reminiscent of Celtic knot patterning. The panel used on the back and sleeves are divided in half to flank the center front opening and then move effortlessly around the V-neck shaping.
