I love the way this sweater drapes, and that’s all thanks to the lovely Whims Merino Yarn from Furls Crochet! I made the sleeves long enough for my arms, and the cozy factor is through the roof now. I’m ready to curl up with a hot drink and crochet the night away. Are you ready to make an Easy Amethyst Cardigan of your own? I’m so excited!
