Sedum is a textured cardigan knit from the top down. Bulky yarn makes for a quick and satisfying knit. Patons Classic Wool Roving adds softness and lends beautifully to the Seed Stitch pattern. The garment is designed with negative ease for a flattering fit with simple waist shaping for a feminine silhouette.
