668 Mill River Cardigan
Many branches of the Mill River flow through the Pioneer Valley, gathering from countless woodland streams and waterfalls in the hilltowns down to the Connecticut River. The Mill River Cardigan pays tribute to its namesake’s natural beauty through flowing lace panels that branch around the neck and run sideways at the cuffs of the elbow-length sleeves. Garter stitch details on the back neck evoke the river’s rocky banks. Instructions are included for both buttoned and unbuttoned fronts.
