Foxtrot Cardigan

Top down seamless sweater with bold lace detail and wavy front bands.

$10.00

Description

Foxtrot is a playful top-down, seamless cardigan with bold lace stitch detail on the body. The vertical garter neckline and wavy front bands give it a little extra “something” – and it all comes together quickly. This is the pattern for the Third Annual 4 Day KAL. (And yes, for some sizes it can really be knit in 4 days!)
