AVFKW x Thea Colman - The Botanist Cardigan Kit


The Botanist Cardigan by Thea Colman // featuring AVFKW Horizon yarn

"This is my version of the traditional Aran cardigan. I started with a shorter length and an easy fit, and created a collar with a deeper upper half, for a more modern take on the shawl. My cables are varied, but feature bold textures and contrast, and were chosen and paired together with a more delicate hand, so many of the lines feel soft and flow into each other. 

I chose Horizon for this design because it's my favorite kind of sweater yarn. The slightly rustic fiber is soft, but distinct and showcases details and motifs beautifully. The naturally dyed lavender in the sample sweater adds a subtle shading to the fabric, which gives such depth to the textures. And Horizon is light and lofty and soft, in a weight that's wearable in almost any season." --Thea
