Woodhill Cardigan

Neutral colors paired with rich texture give this oversized cardigan a purposeful, patchwork feel. To create your own, make a simple rectangle with arm holes, worked from side-to-side, to form the body of the garment. Then, add in double crochet sleeves and a striped collar to create a truly cozy and cabin-ready design.

  • I just subscribed and already I’m having second thoughts about this online. There should definitely be pictures with patterns. I have never seen such a thing. It’s nice to be able to see just what a person is making. Really…need pictures of final project.
