Description

By Joji Locatelli

A loose cozy cardigan. Since I was using a fuzzy yarn, I designed a fuss free pattern… The combination of yarns I used feels just exactly like that, like a cloud! So that’s the only name that kept popping in my head.

This cardigan was initially designed for Curious Handmade’s retreat in Bath and has recently been added to Ravelry.
