Top 5 Easter Cardigan patterns - LoveKnitting blog

1. ”Surry Hills” by Maria Magnusson

Surry Hills Easter cardigan knitting pattern by Maria Magnusson - download FREE from LoveKnitting!

This gorgeous cardigan is knit seamlessly from the bottom up. The pattern is both written and charted, but you may find it easier to follow as a chart! The pattern calls for Cascade Ultra Pima – and though the cardigan pictured features Deep Coral (3767), we can’t get enough of Turquoise (3733) or Sunshine (3764) either!
