cardigan is styled with a summer dress but with the 3/4 length sleeves and the alpaca yarn it's actually a perfect layering garment for autumn and winter as well as the cold English summer we're having this year. Start knitting this now and it'll be ready for autumn.
The back of the cardigan features a lace panel below the back neck which is my favourite feature of this cardigan.
The sample was knitted by Leni aka The Fluffy Viking and she did a great job.
Want to see which fibre I decided to spin (see post below for my choices)? I settled on the Sweet Georgia Merino/Tencel blend. I've always loved this colourway and have wanted to spin it for a while.
