Sweet Little Cardigan in Interweave Knits Gifts 2015

 

Sometimes there is an enchanting little design that melts your heart and the Sweet Little Cardigan, by Brandy Fortune, in the new Interweave Knits Gifts 2015 issue does just that! We are always excited to see our yarn featured in a magazine, but using it with this charming little piece just takes the cake.

This sweater, knit up in our Tough Love Sock, is worked sideways from cuff to cuff. With minimal shaping and a simple six-stitch repeat, it’s a great beginner lace project, and uses the gorgeous nature of hand-dyed yarn just perfectly.
