Rosebud is a seamless raglan cardigan worked from the bottom up. The stitch pattern consists of openwork diamonds spiced up with bobbles in the middle. The sample in the pictures was knitted in a cotton blend yarn, which is a perfect choice for spring or cool summer evenings. Choose cotton to add a lovely cardigan to your summer wardrobe. If knitted in wool, it’s warm enough to wear even in cold weather.
