"Feather" Featherweight

 This is a dk / worsted weight version of the Featherweight Cardigan created with Beata Jezek of Hedgehog Fibres. Kits will be available from Hedgehog Fibres starting Saturday, March 2!

The texture in the fabric is created by combining a novelty feather yarn with a dk weight wool blend yarn. As an alternative, one strand of any dk weight yarn can be used to create a simple fabric.
