Willoughby Cardigan

I'm in love with long cardigans.  They're comfy, trendy and fun to wear.  I'm wearing the Willoughby Cardigan with tights as a short dress.  (Could probably have added another button just above the black loop fur hem for a more conservative look when wearing as a dress, but it's really designed as a cardigan.)  Works great with tights too! 

Skill Level:  Intermediate

This long cardigan is fun to wear and with frilly cuffs and hem. It is worked from the bottom up and is charted with schematics. The bulky weight yarn knits quickly despite the long length. The marbled colors of Inca Tweed gives the sweater depths and produces a garment you can be proud of. It is soft, warm, cozy yet breathable with the lace columns and blended fibers. Finished measurements are for the blocked pieces. Selvedges stitches are included in pattern, but not included in finished measurements.
