My design ideas and advice: This cardigan is the cousin of my Fiona Cardigan design. I had a few requests from knitters that visited my Skipton Studio for a cardigan like the Fiona Cardigan but with a v neck instead. A few of those requests asked for a long version too. So here it is! The cardigan is knitted straight up without any shaping at the bottom of the cardigan, yet by wearing a size smaller than you normally would and the placement of the button makes it look like it is shaped.
*the yarn I used for this pattern has been discontinued and so I’ve suggested the yarn above as a good substitute. I’ve helped visitors to my studio pick shades in this yarn for this pattern and it looked fab!
