My design ideas and advice: This simple crew neck garter stitch cardigan only requires picking up at the neck, so perfect for beginners and great for experience knitters who want to add a simple cardigan in their favourite shade to their wardrobe!
The rest of the edgings are left raw. So when adding new balls bear this in mind and only add them on the seam side and not at the front edges.
If you love this design but just wish it was a jumper rather than a cardigan…..then your wish is my command, click here for the Fiona Jumper!
