This wonderfully thick and warm over-sized cardigan features all-over bobbles in an attractive diagonal formation. My inspiration for this cardigan came from the little pebbles you often find when walking in the woods.
The cardigan is seamlessly knitted top-down. Knitted with the warmest and thickest Jamiesonís of Shetland Marl, this is a perfect distinctive and versatile cardigan to keep you cosy during the cold weather.
And if youíre feeling adventurous, why not knit the bobbles in a contrasting colour?
