One of our favorite designers, Elena Nodel, created Chance of Snow for those cold, wintry days when you require an extra layer. Chance of Snow is a gorgeous, elegant, and very feminine design. It has a modified top down raglan construction and features simple (or not so simple) cables. The garment’s length is very easy to customize. This cardigan can be made with long or short sleeves and is available in 10 sizes! (please note that some kit sizes are combined with similar # of skeins. You will be able to make any of the sizes in the grouping)
Child sized version of this design is called Spun Sugar (Coming Soon!)
Kit includes pattern & selected yarn. For yarn winding services, click here.
