My design ideas and advice: I love vintage hand knits. I enjoy looking at photos from the early 20th century and seeing all the people wearing hand knits. Beautifully made hand knits. I feel each one has a story. I designed this cropped cardigan with that history in mind. I wanted a classic cardigan that would work with any wardrobe and add that beautiful personal touch. This simply beautiful cardigan is easy to knit and perfect for knitting in your favourite colour. Knitted in DK weight yarn it is perfect in cotton for the summer/spring months or in British Wool for a warmer cardigan.
And if you fancied this with longer sleeves then pop over to see the Harper Cardigan…
