Introducing the Nektaria Cardigan knitting pattern, your must-have for this fall! A design by Evelyn Siatra
The Nektaria Cardigan was born out of a desire to decorate a simple, wearable shape, with the intricate allover patterning of delicately textured flower motifs and leaves. The flowers are shaped with small bobbles, while the leaves are formed with an openwork pattern.
