Cleburne Cardigan

This is a saddle sleeve shoulder cardigan, with two rectangular panels that form the shoulder. The front and back of the cardigan are picked up after the saddle sleeve panels are knit.  Super bulky yarn leads to an instantly gratifying garment knit. This cardigan is perfect for someone trying colorwork or steeking for the first time, with the large visible stitches in our Turbine yarn.
