Pattern 9398 - New Wondersoft DK

Cardigan and Tunic

These two girl's designs look more complicated than they are. A self striping yarn has been used to knit the stripes and gives the appearance of many colours being knitted rather than just two. The design has simple drop sleeves, so is easy to sew up as well.
