Macaulay Cardigan – Project Kit

£0.00

The Macaulay Cardigan is a classic, semi-fitted cardigan with set-in sleeves. It has deep ribbed welts at the waist and cuffs, accentuated by a contrasting band of Garter Stitch which gives the effect of piping.

Macaulay is knitted from the bottom up in pieces and seamed, then finished by picking up stitches for the button bands and neckband.

The kit will contain the pattern and  3-6 x 100g skeins of Tamar DK for Main Shade, and 1 skein in Contrast Colour, depending on the size order. It will arrive in one of our cotton tote project bags.

Pattern Level of Ability: Intermediate
