Kindred Knits Collection: Zip Up Cardigan

saddle-shoulder.jpg Introducing a men's sweater to the Kindred Knits Collection.  This bulky weight cardigan knits up super fast!  As with all patterns in the collection, this cardigan is available in a wide range of  sizes, Child's 2-4 through Men's 2X.  It features handsome saddle shoulders and zips up the front.  My husband is modeling the Men's Large.  I can't wait to see a wee one knit up!
