Pattern Description:

This trendy cardigan uses snap tape as a closure allowing you to snap it all the way up or leave it unsnapped a few snaps for two different looks. It uses one of our favorite yarns and drapes beautifully. It is a perfect Spring knit as it is knit looser than the gauge called for by the yarn, giving it a lighter look.
