Feature Pattern of the Week - The Throwback

Ring in the new year with a project just for you! The Throwback Cardigan by Andrea Mowry is a classic color work cardigan that has a fresh, modern feel. The color work yoke is just the right amount of detail. Worked flat from the top down (sleeves are knit in round), this seamless sweater can be worn in many seasons
