Sweet Alford Cardi Kit

£76.50 - £146.50

We now offer handy kits of this pattern. All kits include enough yarn to make this cosy cabled cardi along with the pattern, a shadecard for one of our ranges and a fab project bag to keep it all safe. Happy knitting!  

The Sweet Alford Cardi pattern is designed by Sonja Bargielowska, one of our splendid Mill Folk. Click here if you’d like to buy just the pattern, without the yarn. 

This V-neck cardigan is worked seamlessly from the bottom up, with mirrored cables running all the way up the body, alongside the button band and playful cable details on the sleeves. Once the body and sleeves are completed, all are joined together and stitches are decreased in a raglan yoke. The button band is then picked up and worked in 1×1 rib.
