What an ideal summer cardigan! A sleeveless, one button cardigan.
It's knitting in one piece, with a little ruffle on the back bottom border, looks cute and solves any issues one may have with casting off too tightly.
Knitted in Stylecraft's Malabar DK weight, a cotton/silk machine washable (and it can be tumble dried, I think) blend. At first I wasn't that keen on this weight (love the aran weight) but it's grown on me, after leaving it be for a few weeks. I haven't washed it yet, this is straight off the needles!.
A back view of the ruffle (but not very centred, sorry!)
I may even knit a few more of these. Fast, easy and I reckon that they will last thorugh a few growth spurts as it's short and sleeveless.
