Light as air, soft as silk; Aki Cardigan is as dreamy to knit as it is to wear. Simple top-down raglan construction makes this a perfect first garment to knit. Wear this open-front, cropped cardigan over a summer frock to take you through to the cooler months. Inspired by beautiful simplicity of Japanese style, Aki features softly puffed 3/4 length sleeves while the twisted ribbing adds sophistication to this beauty. Two strands of lace weight yarn are held together throughout, creating the ultimate in luxe texture that you’ll want to keep stroking as you knit.
