Where to start? This cardigan has it all: cute cropped length, rad eyelet patterning, and fade or solid colour options.
Create a sumptuous yarn with the ultimate hold-all-the-strands together mix of delicious luxe kid/silk/glitter for an out-of-this-world garment or go for a more rustic wool for every day wear. Knit from the top-down, short rows shape the neck and flattering raglan shaping forms the yoke. Keep yourself entertained with the eyelet patterning and finish with the cute cropped length that will look wonderful with frocks, skirts and your go-to denim.

The pattern includes a handy progress chart to keep track of your project.
