The ESTHER cardigan is sewn from double-faced knitted fabric that has two "right" sides - meaning the fabric looks nice on both sides. The classic shawl-collar silhouette makes this cardigan a wardrobe staple. ESTHER is also available in children's sizes and can be a sweet opportunity for a mother/daughter look. This project is sewn quickly and easily and is an ideal project for beginners.
