Evergreen Cardigan

By Jessie McKitrick

The Evergreen cardigan features three different textures that are relaxing to knit yet keep the work interesting without being fussy. The cardigan features saddle shoulders, a shawl collar, and a button-band, making for a handsome addition to any wardrobe.

While the sizes are calculated based on men's sizing standards, it will also work well as a unisex garment, with the simple construction making any needed modifications simple to make. This all purpose cardigan is ever green in nature and not just in colour, as it can be worn everywhere, anytime, and in any colour!
