Pattern 9985 - Savannah


These ballet style cardigans are not only sweet but are also easy to knit. The cardigans wrap around and secured with a button. We love the detail of eyelets adorning the sleeves and the lower body, finished off with a garter stitch border.

Be transported to warm sub-tropical grasslands with our Savannah yarn. This aran weight yarn has a long colour change and is made using 100 % cotton meaning it’s not only cool but natural too so perfect for sensitive skins. You will notice how there is a lovely drape to the yarn. This is because the cotton is so silky soft and its lovely natural texture is ideal for creating beautiful stitch definition.
