Pleated and Pocketed Cardigan


SKU: N/A Categories: , Tag:

The pleats add fun interest to the sweater which otherwise has a very simple shape.  The crop  length (and can be made longer) lends itself to flatter most body types.  I knit this in a wool tweed but I would like it just as well in a cotton for the spring.
