Pattern Description:

This is a comfy wrap sweater that is sure to become your favorite. The Super Soul Cardigan is reminiscent of the big, bulky sweaters from back in the '70's.

There is a lovely color work pattern that was inspired by Turkish embroidery, and don't miss the secret pockets that are hidden behind the this color work. The background is comprised of the lively and fun "spot stitch".
