A classic buttoned cardigan with cuffs - soft, comfortable and easy to knit in Frog Tree Alpaca’s sport weight 100% alpaca wool. The color and texture of this yarn is exceptional. The pattern from Mac & Me is garter stitch all the way, minimum shaping, easy collar topped off with beautiful big hand-made buttons. By adding gorgeous hand-made buttons and rollup vented cuffs, we’ve given it a pretty edge! Great project for beginners. Knit with 2 strands together. Kit includes pattern and yarn. Lacey hand-made buttons optional. A Mac & Me design with some adaptation by Knittingbag.
