Nothing conjures up the Canadian Rockies like the image of antlers. The magestic rack of an Elk buck is something not many get to see in their lives and it is a sight to behold! This beloved cardigan design is from the Tin Can Knits partner, Alexa Ludeman. Gorgeous antlers adorn the yoke of this cardigan while ribbing accentuates the hems. Simple and refined, this unisex pattern fits babies, children & adults! Please click here for the children's kits. (The pattern includes all 16 sizes!)
