Knit yourself something Rad! Radvent Cardigan is a cosy knit, featuring batwing sleeves. Wear it nipped in at the waist by closing the buttons, or leave it open at the front. Designed to make the most of a 25 mini-skein yarn set, the garment is knit from cuff to centre on each side and joined together. Perfect for a fade/gradient set, Radvent will also look glorious in a random order of colours, or you may choose to knit it in a single colour - so many possibilities. A contrasting colour is used for the cuffs, collar and hem and an option to “luxe” it up is included where you may choose to hold a strand of mohair through the project, as shown here in the sample.

A handy progress chart is included for each size to help you keep track of your colour changes and rows.
