Linescapes is a super cosy cardigan worked on US 11 / 8 mm needles which makes it a quick project to finish. Purl rows create a subtle striped effect that together with the fold-down collar gives the design a subtle vintage vibe. Wear this cardigan on chilly summer evenings with a floral dress and boots or styled with a pair of relaxed jeans and sneakers when going to the city.
