A very nice cable knit sleeveless cardigan for men. We haven’t shared this pattern before, it may look like a classic men’s cardigan, but it makes a difference with both colors and cable knits.
This can be a great choice if you want to give a gift to your partner, lover or friend. It may take some time, but the result is worth it. This cardigan is wearable in all seasons, wool yarn was preferred but you can try another yarn as well.
Cable knit sleeveless cardigan pattern is intended for experienced knitters, but if you know the knitting techniques used, you can try your luck, a good job can occur. I’m happy to answer any questions you may have about men’s sleeveless cardigan. This work is a pattern shared by Nako for free. Good luck…
