Mini Marple Cardigan

a sweet little oddity


$6.00

 

Inspired by the fashion stylings of Miss Marple in the fabulous BBC program, “MARPLE,” this cardigan features a criss crossing collar. This seamless short-sleeved cardigan is knit from the bottom up. The seed stitch edging is buttonhole-free and the yoke is knit to create a playful saddle shoulder with a pouffy cap sleeve. In a sea of Button-up Raglan sweaters, this cardigan is a sweet little oddity for your odd little sweety.
