Springy, soft yarn with cosy ribbing and cables makes Piper the cardy you’ll reach for over and over when the days turn cool.

The boxy shape and warm collar make Piper easy to wear and you’ll feel great wearing this cosy cardigan over jeans, as well as long skirts with boots and tights.

Piper is a top-down cardigan perfect for DK & worsted weight yarn, with dropped sleeves and cables that are simple to work. It’s constructed in a fun way that’s laid out clearly; you’ll begin with the back and then pick up the collar and knit that as you work down the front sections.

Sleeves are picked up and knitted in the round and charted and written instructions for the cable are included.

Piper is a fantastic knit for intermediate knitters and beginners looking for an adventure.
