Cropped looks are all the rage this season – and this cute cardigan uses the colours of nature to boost your wardrobe.
Cropped cardis are great for wearing over loose dresses for extra warmth, and make a good alternative to jackets.

The use of a single reverse st st row in a contrast colour, gives the cardi an interesting optical colour effect This is combined with a lace-stitch panel at the centre back and on the sleeves adding to the unique texture of this garment.

Knitted in an Aran weight wool, this is a quick, but interesting project.
