This week’s free pattern features Noro Silk Garden, which happens to be part of our May Anniversary Sale yarns. The Scoop Neck Cardigan is a great, classic shape.

The stripes created by Silk Garden add an interesting detail to this cardigan and it is a great way to spice up your sweater collection with a bit of color.

Have you had a chance to check out our May sale yarns yet? Did you see anything you would like? I can’t believe there are only two weeks left to the sale. May sure is flying. I know I have to make my plan for yarns I want to pick up before they aren’t on sale anymore.

What is your favorite yarn in the Anniversary Sale?
