Cascade 220 Fingering Barbicel Cardigan Kit - Women's Cardigans


Taken from: Pom Pom Quarterly Autumn 2017 "Barbicel Cardigan" - As autumn nights turn bitter cold and the leaves tumble down, this long cardigan will keep you toasty while still showing off your amazing outfit. The colourwork lattice panels are worked in a super simple pattern that encourages even those of us new to stranded knitting to take the plunge. We've called it Barbicel after the tiny hook-like structures that lock bird feathers into a lattice, keeping them warm and dry and creating the surface that lets them fly. Let this be your personal plumage.
