From the moment this cardigan hops onto your needles, Maudie will make you feel like you've found your best friend.  This pattern has a calming influence with a definite rhythm that you'll love from start to finish.  The details are gentle yet bold, and reassuringly steady, but also loads of fun to create and wear. Gentle zigzags with lace borders grace the front button bands and the center of each sleeve for delicate feminine details without the fuss.

Knitted from the top down in plump DK yarn and incorporating loads of interesting details, Maudie is one of those knits you can’t put down.  The front panels drift deliciously into the hem, and the feminine details on the sleeves keep you wondering what’s next but are intuitive enough to knit while you chat with friends.  Ideal for knitters with a project or two under the belt in top-down knitting, or the knitter that is keen on a quick adventure with a special project.  Maudie includes written and charted instructions which are both straightforward and easy-to-follow.  Available in 15 individual inclusive sizes!
