WOW! We love this fabulous Checkerboard Cardigan, a striking statement piece for everyone! It’s easier to knit than you think, using a simple intarsia method - knit all the colours in one single row, twisting the yarn to avoid holes between colours. Debbie Bliss Nell is a fabulous chunky mohair yarn that is bang on trend, in a palette of thrilling jewel tones and pastels, and it works up so fast on 6mm needles!
