This cardigan was designed for the mother (Kaye) of one of our LYS owners here in Charlotte, Lyn of Cottage Yarn. Kaye owns a purchased cardigan that she loves, and wondered if we might come up with a similar style. Kaye's original cardigan has just a single button at the neck, which this cardigan could easily be modified to reflect.
