NOTE: A tapestry needle may be helpful when seaming and securing all loose ends.

Buttons can be added to this style to make it your signature piece.

Care: Dry clean or hand wash cold, lay flat to dry. Please test any washing/drying method on a small swatch to ensure you like the end result. Note that exposing wool to heat (hot water) or agitation (machine washing) will cause it to felt.

Yarn made in Italy, kit assembled in the USA.

Top-Down Cardigan is a  sumptuously soft and chunky cardigan knit in our classic Merino No. 5 yarn. As the name denotes, it’s knit top-down in one piece with familiar raglan shaping and, of course, we have video tutorials to walk you through any new-to-you techniques. It’s the cardigan counterpart to our Top-Down Sweater, and is just as enjoyable to knit and to wear!

Shown in Rococo Blue (S), Rococo Pink (S), and Moody Blues (M).
