I loooove this cardigan!

Honestly I wear it every chance I get, as it is so comfy and the colours never fail to make me smile.

The puff stitch colours were inspired by a blanket by the lovely Kate of @jellybean_junction and they make me think of ice cream with sprinkles. Plus this is a perfect Sunday brunch friendly item, so I’ve named this the Sundae Cardigan.

With wide, short sleeves and an open front this is a perfect layering piece that won’t hinder your ability to go about your day whilst still keeping you cosy.

Pop it on over a t-shirt and jeans, tank top and shorts or a cute dress and you’re ready to take on the day with style.

So pick your fave base colour (grey for me all the way), 
5 colours that make you smile and get crocheting.
