Snowcap Cardigan Pattern
The Snowcap Cardigan is a true heirloom knit, a classic style in our softest Spun Cloud yarn with the teeniest hint of sparkle. This pattern is great for anyone who has knit a sweater before but is up for tackling cables and a short row shawl collar. This sweater has a cozy oversized fit and comes one size fits most. You'll start off by knitting each sweater panel (1 back, 2 fronts and 2 sleeves) and then move on to seam the pieces along the raglan armhole edges. Lastly, you'll pick up stitches for the front rib placket and collar. The larger needle size make this a pretty quick knit too! Our sample is knit in Spun Cloud color Fog Heather.
