Sporty Stripes Cardigan Review:
It is a ladies’ hoodie style classic striped cardigan. It knits up quickly with durable, easy care Kraemer Yarns Made-in-the-USA “Perfection” weight acrylic/merino wool blend yarn, spun in Nazareth, PA. “Chunky” is especially soft and enjoyable to knit, making this the perfect casual sweater for cooler evenings and into fall. The garment supporting your favorite sports team. Or just choose two or more colors that you especially like. The counterpart is the striped adult’s unisex “Sporty Stripes Pullover”, also knit with soft easy-care “Perfection Chunky” in a different stripe sequence.
Here is what Kraemer Yarns says about the yarn: “Perfection is a soft, easy care wool/acrylic blend that won’t break the bank. Perfection is well, perfect! The merino wool makes the blend one of the softest around. It is very comfortable against the skin. Whether you are knitting a sweater for a newborn infant, an afghan for a friend or something special for yourself, you will find that Perfection is a great all purpose yarn. Perfection is available in 57 colors and four weights: DK, Worsted, Chunky and Super Bulky.
