My design ideas and advice: I adore this cardigan. It is a classic shape which is simple to knit. I want to wear my Harper cardigan all the time! I wear it with jeans and t-shirt or with a dress. The first one I knitted was in cotton but I love it so much that I knitted one in British Wool…I am also tempted to knit one in every colour of the rainbow to go with every single piece of clothing I have in my wardrobe!
