M. K. Nance
The Arrowhead Cardigan features a geometric, colorwork, arrowhead pattern at the yoke and simple colorwork bands at the hem and cuffs. Made from the bottom up in one-piece, the simple two-color motifs and easy construction make this a deceptively simple colorwork sweater for a novice and a rather quick and wearable knit all around.
