Introducing the Grey Goose Cardi

I’ve been looking forward to writing this post for some time. But that day is finally here. I’ve been talking a lot about Berroco Glint for the last few months, and now, may I introduce to you the sweater that shows of this yarn so beautifully, Grey Goose Cardi.

I’ve really wanted an elegant, drapy cardigan ever since I first saw them everywhere. When I clapped my eyes on Berroco Glint, the match was made. This is a wonderfully drapy yarn and the little bit of metallic gives it such an elegant look. It’s an incredibly versatile cardigan, that will add some spice to your wardrobe throughout the year. The top down construction and all over stockinette pattern makes it a super quick knit.
