Snowcap Cardi Pattern
The Snowcap Cardigan is an ultra cozy sweater designed using basic cables with a beginner cabler in mind. This raglan cardigan is worked from the bottom up in pieces and boasts a double cabled centered back, mirrored cables on each sleeve, and a large shawl collar. There is an option for flat or folded cuffs for the sleeves (note, the folded option takes extra yarn!). A great addition to any fall/winter wardrobe, this cardigan will keep you snuggly warm on the coldest of days. This design knits up in our softest Spun Cloud yarn with the teeniest hint of sparkle.
The Snowcap Cardi is an old Knit Collage favorite that just got a major refresh! We revamped this pattern to include a wider range of sizes and simpler, easier to follow, collar knitting instructions.
