A cape shouldered boucle cardigan with matching cowl neck snood

“Savannah is part cape, part cardigan with the shoulder extended to form the upper arm and elbow length sleeves. The neck piece is optional but in this soft boucle yarn it’s a perfect choice for a cosy snood. Worked in simple stocking stitch this cardigan is a great fashion basic for the less experienced knitter.” - Jo Storie
