The Lisa cardigan is a fun, satisfying project that’s perfect for pairing vintage or mismatched buttons with your favorite knit fabric! It has a relaxed, roomy fit that’s ideal for layering, with a dropped shoulder, faced V-neckline, and a 3” cuff. There’s room for four 1” buttons on the center front, so don’t be afraid to add some flair.
