Tangerine Cardigan

By:

A bright knitted cardigan looks great with jeans and a tee, as well as a cute summer dress.  This soft Tangerine Cardigan from Vickie Howell is great for the spring and summer months, and is super easy to make!  The tangerine color is unique and bright...and the yarn makes this sweater very comfy!  Add a sweet flower on the side as a little something special!  Free knitted sweater patterns for women are great any time of year!
