The elusive “nalgar” (“raglan” spelled backwards) sleeve construction makes the Valley Yarns 568 Dianthus Baby Cardigan cardigan a fun, purl-free and nearly seamless knitting project. The luminous colors and great quality of BFL Fingering Hand-Dyed really makes this garment an heirloom. For a machine-washable option, check out Valley Yarns Franklin.
