The Design

"Light and pretty."

A timeless little cardi always manages to look modern. Ours has classic details: a pretty, jewel neckline, knit-a-long button bands, full- or bracelet-length sleeves. In eight sizes, and with two sleeve lengths, you can make this cardigan just right for you.

We’ve knit our Quintessential Cardigan in a combination of two incredible yarns from Isager—Alpaca 1 and Silk Mohair. One a lace-weight strand of 100% baby alpaca, the other a lace-weight blend of kid mohair and silk, they unite in one glorious fabric. The weightless halo of Silk Mohair is grounded by the soft drape of Alpaca 1 for one of our prettiest cardis ever.

Grab the pattern below and choose a color from our selection of favorite shades of Isager Alpaca 1 and Isager Silk Mohair. See the Basic Details tab for sizing information. Note: for ease of ordering, we have combined some sizes. Size Extra Small is for finished bust sizes 33 & 36"; size Small is for finished bust sizes 39, 42 & 45"; size Medium is for finished bust size 48"; and size Large is for finished bust sizes 51 & 54".
