Augusta Cardigan

Cardigan Knitting PatternThe Augusta Cardigan Kephren Pritchett is available in Interweave Knits Fall 2016. The pattern can be purchased on its own or with the magazine.

When creating the cocoon-style Augusta Cardigan, the designer envisioned the kind of cozy sweater she would like to pull on first thing in the morning or while watching the sun set. The incredibly soft merino of Woolfolk Får contributes greatly to the comfort of this dreamy cardigan.
