Pärlhyacint Cardigan


This is a vintage inspired children’s cardigan. It is made in one piece from the bottom up with a beautiful texture pattern all over. My inspiration for this design comes from the spring bulb Muscari botryoidesin in Swedish Pärlhyacint and its beautiful stacking of the buds and as my favourite fashion era is the 1940’s to the 1960’s it’s no wonder that the cardigan has some resemblance of that period. Depending on your yarn choice you can make it fit with many styles and personalities, for example, see the white fluffy fairytale that one of my testers knit.
