This beautiful, relaxed cardigan has pattern detailing on the lower body and on the sleeves. The name Niitty means “meadow” in Finnish, and it was inspired by the flowers in a meadow. The cardigan is worked bottom up, flat. The buttonband is worked separately using the double knitting technique and sewn (or crocheted) to the body piece.
