Helliwell Cardigan

$6.00

Product Description

Go gracefully from denim to tweed with this versatile pattern. Helliwell is a sweet old-fashioned cardigan worked from the bottom up with a built-in button band and round yoke. The openwork motif around the yoke prettily frames the necks and shoulders while side shaping flatters the figure. Everything is edged with simple seed stitch. Includes instructions for both short and long sleeves.
