Sometimes you just need that cardigan: the everyday, easy-to-wear-with-everything cardigan. The one that you reach for when you go out, and when you stay in. The one that shows off beautiful yarn and fits just right.

Introductory offer: subscribers to the EastLondonKnit newsletter get an exclusive discount which is good until 19th April, 2019! Don’t miss out!

Allium is a top-down, seamless cardigan. It is a variation of a variation: based on the Enso sweater from the Zen Variations collection, but with a few important alterations; it has more positive ease, a slightly cropped length and a straight hem. The plain stockinette stitch body makes it a perfect cardigan to show off a beautiful hand-dyed variegated or semi-solid yarn. Designed to be a staple of the handmade wardrobe, (or any wardrobe!), Allium is a cardigan you will wear and love for years to come.
