We're absolutely in love with Crosshatch Cardigan by Nina Holubcova! This piece is certain to remain in your wardrobe for years to come!
Three variations on 2-color Brioche Stitch create graphic textures in a reversible cardigan with a relaxed silhouette. Crosshatch Cardigan can be worn 4 ways, as a classic shawl collar cardigan or ‘upside down’, with either right or wrong sides showing.
Basic brioche knitting knowledge is needed to complete this pattern. You can purchase the full Crosshatch Cardigan Kit Here, which includes the pattern for free.
