A mosaic patterned cropped v-neck cardigan emulates the colourful experience of a ride in a glass-bottom boat

This cardigan is a wonderful way to use up your fingering weight yarns. The mosaic pattern stays the same but its appearance changes with each new colour. The cardigan is edged with a funky fringe on the body bottom and sleeves and with a rolled stockinette edging on the v-neck.
