We are in love with this stripy sensation from Heidi Kirrmaier. If you ask us, you just can’t beat a simple cardigan when it comes to layering and versatility, and this little beauty combines simple lines and straightforward shaping, with fun stripes to express your personality! The Ship Shape cardigan is worked seamlessly from the top down, beginning with the 2 shoulder gussets, and it’s these little details that really add some pizazz to the design. Heidi made this cardi in our workhorse Appledore DK, and we love the shades she chose. We have created some kits in a few other colour combos that we think will look absolutely cracking!
