Pedal Pusher

Description

Nothing feels better than a cozy fall sweater except one that is as light as it is warm. This cozy, unisex cardigan in nine sizes (XS/S/M/L and 1X through 5X) is just that—substantial enough to take you from September through March but so wearable when knit from a lofty worsted weight wool yarn. Knit in one piece from hem to neck with cable detailing along the seams, front edges, and optional side entry pockets, this is a project as delicious to knit as it is to wear.
