The Alpine Bluffs Cardigan is wonderfully textured with a unique combination of stitches throughout the entire piece, including the hood. The Alpine Bluffs Cardigan is designed so that you can easily customize your stripe placements. The ribbed cuffs and edging give the cardigan a finished and fitted look.

I made my sample in four colors, however you can use any combination of colors that you like, in-clude self-striping yarns, one solid color or any combo of stripes. The pattern will come in sizes XS through 5x.

YARN
Any Sport Weight yarn
I used Red Heart Comfort Sport in my sample, however this yarn is discontinued now. Here are some alternative yarns that you can use, though you can use any yarn that you can get gauge with. I recommend Patons Astra; Aran, Deep Pink, Medium Blue and Hot Green would work great.
