This sweater was designed as part of Bespoke: Sweaters, a little collection of lovely pullovers and cardigans.


Sticks and Steel adds a new twist on the basic grandpa cardigan. Open front, fun A-line shaping and squishy garter stitch collar are the key features of this wonderful little cardigan.
The chunky weight yarn makes this a super quick knit and also makes it wonderfully warm and soft to wear.
