Xylia £4.75


A textured asymetrical cardigan

Originally published in The Crochet Project issue 2: Woodland Whimsy

Xylia means ‘of the wooded land’ and characterises this pattern perfectly with its textured stitches reminiscent of bark. This asymmetrical cardigan is both feminine and functional to wear with its little pocket and scalloped edges.
