’Buttermere’ has to be one of my favourite garments from ‘Lakeland’. It’s great to wear with a tartan or check skirt and can be dressed up or down depending on your mood. Although the crochet trims are optional, I urge you to add them has they really do make this cardigan very special indeed.

IMPORTANT YARN NOTE: Rowan has discontinued Rowan Fine Tweed. As an alternative you can use the following colours in SPINDRIFT from Jamieson’s of Shetland:
A. Birch 252, B. Moss 147, C. Camel 141
As the yardage is slightly higher on SPINDRIFT, you will need approximately 2 balls less of the main colour A. Use the yarn amounts as given above for the remaining colours.
