2022LD-1 Bubble Brioche Cardigan (Digital Download)


Holding together a strand of Alegria for body and a strand of Cabrito for luxurious warmth makes the Bubble Brioche Cardigan the ultimate in cozy. A clever shift from brioche to classic k1, p1 rib forms both the bell shape of the sleeve and the bubble shape of the body.
