Hooked for Life Rose Sweater PDF
This pattern is a downloadable PDF file.
The Rose Cardigan is a flattering combination of openwork stitching and clean shaping. Built in two directions off of the center band, the stitch patterns are set up so the fabric expands a bit in width as you stitch, giving you a terrific cardigan that forms to your curves without bulk where you don’t want it!
