This summery top-down cardigan hits all the right notes: easy to wear and wash yarn, fun little details in just the right places, and plenty of stockinette for when you just want to sit and knit. Raglan sleeves, garter welts, and a split hem add fashion without a lot of fuss. Designed by the lovely Amy Christoffers for Berroco, Bly comes in 7 sizes, and is a free pattern! Perfect for those non-wool wearing folks, we like this cardigan year round.
