Sakura is a simply shaped cardigan with a double breasted front and lovely detailing in the intarsia and i-cord, you can choose to work short sleeves for a layering garment or long sleeved for extra warmth, and if you feel that the flower is too girly the cardigan looks equally stunning without it, and is perfect for a baby boy.

Suitable for the advanced beginner onwards, the pattern contains a chart for the intarsia flower as well as tips for successful intarsia and i-cord.
