The Garden Cardigan is a classic piece that you'll wear again and again. Basic stitches make it a great project for new and experienced garment stitchers alike. The bodice is composed of single crochet. After seaming, the graceful lace section is joined at the empire waist and continued downward, allowing for easy modification of length. The recommended Koigu yarn offers hundreds of color options, and the tight twist and springiness will highlight the beautiful textures and ensure long life to your new sweater!
