The Stroll Cardigan is a multi-season, figure-flattering style that pairs beautifully with a simple tee or tank. It
has a boat-neck with ¾ length sleeves and is perfect for adding a little style to your outfit without too much warmth -- especially when knit in Acadia. Acadia provides perfect drape and warmth for this design, yet remains deliciously light and airy.

Stroll is knit in one piece, seamless, top down, raglan-style, and with minimal shaping. This will be your new favorite project; it’s quick to knit and fabulous to wear. You might need to make two!

Recommended for Advanced Beginners and up. This would make a great first sweater for a knitter with a good grasp of basic techniques and gauge.

My design philosophy is to create garments that are as fun to knit as they are to wear, with figure-flattering styles and design elements that provide interest but not hassle.
