Reminiscent of a field of wildflowers, the La Prairie Cardigan by Joji Locatelli is a fun to knit cardigan featuring weaving cables & textural bobbles.
The cardigan is knit in La Bien Aimée Twist Nouveau or Merino Singles. It would also be gorgeous knit in Hedgehog Fibres Skinny Singles, Hedgehog Fibres Twist Sock, Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light or Madelinetosh Twist Light.
Knit with 5 colors, it is a chance to play with fades. There are so many options from gradient to multi-color fades!

The weaving cable & bobble design adds gorgeous interest to the body, while the sleeves feature a garter section to streamline.
