Oxbow Cardigan

8.00

I wanted to create a sweater that I would enjoy knitting again and again. A cozy pattern to fit my whole family, including my husband, daughter, son and (of course) myself! Cardigans are perfect for layering, but also for gifting because of their flexible fit. And this engaging, easy-to-memorize stitch pattern is one of my all time favorites! The “wrong” side is just as attractive as the “right” side, so you could really get two very different sweaters by simply picking up the stitches for the shawl collar from the opposite side! The sweater is knit seamlessly (except for
the underarms) from the bottom up, and finished by picking up stitches for the shawl collar. Brooklyn Tweed’s Quarry makes this a fast, cozy knit that is still light to wear and very flattering!

*In purchasing this product you will receive a .pdf pattern for the pictured item so that you can knit them up yourself, not the actual finished item.
