Lexington Top-Down Cardigan


SKU: 116. Category: .

Product Description

When I first tried this cardigan on, it seemed natural to pair it with breeches and boots – though to be honest, as a horse lover, I think EVERYTHING goes well with breeches and boots! I named the cardigan after Lexington, the center of the Kentucky horse world. The cardigan features ribbed front bands that begin at the center back neck with a provisional cast-on, and a shirttail hem that is shaped using short rows. Lexington is SO comfortable and easy to wear. I’ll be knitting this again for myself!
