We are thrilled to share yet another beautiful design by Andrea Yetman for Biscotte Yarns ♥
Ray of Soleil cardigan was inspired by my Ray of Soleil pullover. I love it so much I had to have it in a cardigan! This cardigan Features a beautiful eyelet yoke followed by 2 wedges, and a textured ribbing for the double collar, cuffs and hem. And finally to make this my dream cardigan, I topped it off with adorable buttons and pockets in contrasting colors!! I hope this cardigan will bring you as much “soleil” as it brings me! - Andrea

to use this pattern. Thanks so much for providing it. I just love the “fun look” of it. At the moment, however, I have several other projects to finish before I start a new one. ( A new year’s resolution! 😉) Thanks again.
I haven’t tried the pattern out at this time, but I really like the pattern.
Great pattern, love it.
