Glacier Cardigan knitting pattern
Glacier Cardigan is worked on big needles using chunky yarn making this a deceptively quick knit to finish. The top of the body and sleeves are made in one piece which is later attached to the bottom of the body. With the moss stitch edging and fabulous collar, Glacier will be a highly versatile garment which will quickly become a favourite.
