Pure Comfort Cardigan - Free Pattern

Pure Comfort Cardigan is an original design by Andrea Yetman for Biscotte Yarns ♥ We are happy to offer this cardigan pattern free of charge.

"I wanted a cardigan that would be ideal for everyday wear in a color that would match just about everything. The longer style with pockets and a Fisherman’s Rib shawl collar, this design has everything that I look for in a cozy everyday cardigan. Knit with Biscotte’s DK Pure, a combination of Merino and Silk, this cardigan is not only the perfect amount of comfort but the perfect amount of softness."  - Andrea.

Best customer service.... Especially for a free pattern

I haven't made this sweater yet, but I had a question that was answered promptly and completely. I have been looking at other patterns bored, thinking if this company stress so we'll with a few pattern is like to see what they do if I surge money!

Good pattern, had trouble understanding the shawl collar directions, however, when I contacted Biscotte, they were more than helpful and I was able to complete the sweater. I am very pleased with it.
