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!
