You all really loved the Oxford Boyfriend Cardigan from Two of Wands! The response has been so great that we’ve decided to offer the kit in even more colors.
The sweater, made with Fast-Track®, is soft, cozy, and comfy while still being lightweight. Fast-Track® is a cotton-poly blend, which makes it feel like your favorite t-shirt.
The pattern is available in two sizes — S/M and L/XL — and takes either six or seven skeins of yarn. You can purchase a kit here in any of the colors. It’s 25% off for a limited time, so jump on that deal now, while you still can!
The new color combinations give you some choices, so that you can really make the sweater suit your style. The royal blue and white adds a nautical touch, while the green and gray is cheerful (and would look great on any redheads out there). And of course, you can never go wrong with basic black and gray. That choice will go with pretty much anything, making this already versatile cardi even more useful.
It can be bright or subdued, neutral or funky. This sweater looks great over a basic casual outfit like jeans and a tee, but you could make it work for other occasions as well. With the right skirt, it could go to work, or even out at night on a date or to meet friends! Plus, since Fast-Track® has a nice lightweight feel, this will be a great piece to have for cool summer nights.
This is a great project for any level of knitter, too! It’s simple enough to be your first sweater, but it’s still interesting enough that a more advanced knitter won’t get bored. The stockinette stitch shows off the uniqueness of the yarn, while the colored stripes add a nice bit of detail.
