FRANCESCA HUGHES

SYRUP WAFFLE CARDIGAN

£8.00

A cardigan to go with any outfit: wear it as a smart cardy with a dress, or as a casual jacket with jeans. The beautiful natural colour of the Zwartbles fibre is a great base for adding a pop of individuality through colour. The stitch pattern creates a quilted look and the shape is simple and flattering.

The print pattern comes with a complimentary download code for the digital version as well.
