Morchella Cardigan

$7.50
Type: Knit

Difficulty: 2/5

Designer: Whitney Hayward  
This cardigan is nearly as simple as it gets. Cartridge rib, despite the look and name, requires no purl stitches when worked flat, and alternating slipped stitches make for a meditative, easy knit. An excellent candidate for a first garment knit, or for the knitter who enjoys straightforward, uncomplicated knitting.
