My design ideas and advice: This cardigan is the sibling to the Crag Jumper however, this time the honeycomb cable wraps around the sides of the cardigan, giving a warm woolly hug to your little one when they’re wearing it. My niece tells me that this is what she loves about wearing hand knits, she says it’s like having a big hug all the time.
