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.

Pure Comfort Cardigan - Free Pattern

Pattern looks great! Amount of yarn needed is going to restrict my start date for this project. I’d like to make at least four!
