Regular price £6.00

A relaxed, comfortable cardigan knit with tuck stitches that can look smart or casual depending on your mood.

  • Round-neck boxy cardigan knitted using two different tuck stitches
  • Stitch pattern for the main body is a tuck stitch giving the impression of a big check worked over 8 rows but with no floats, making it a lighter knit, perfect for cool spring days.
  • Knitted in one piece from the bottom up to the armholes, where it is then separated into the fronts and the back
  • Sleeves are knitted flat then seamed together.
  • Button bands and the neck band are picked up and knit in garter stitch.
