There is always that weird time between seasons where you never know if you should wear a coat or if a sweater is fine. The Eleanor Cardigan is a great solution! It’s a bit heavier than a normal cardigan thanks to the chunky weight yarn, but not quite a coat. It’s a coatigan.

Try this easy pattern and have everyone asking you where you got this piece!
