Halo Cardigan for children

$10.00

A slightly cropped cardi coat knitted from lofty, soft and luxurious alpaca is a wardrobe staple and sure to be on constant rotation. An open front and causal fit leave the simplicity of the yarn and design take centre stage. Named ‘halo’ because of the glow of the alpaca, this project will surround you with warmth when cold winds blow.
