Collared Cardigan

Designed by: Dawn Daniels

The Collared Cardigan is the perfect versatile piece to add polish to a pair of jeans with a t-shirt or white shirt for girls lunch or pair it with your little black dress for a night on the town.

 

Notes:

The pattern is loom knit as 5 separate flat panels and then sewn together.  The length of sleeves and jacket are a crop size (See photo with purple collared cardigan).  See sample in neutral color, modeled by Dawn, for a longer sleeve and length version. Add length as desired.

 

Size:

UK size 10 / 12 (8/10 US or Canada) sample size.
