The 3 days cardigan was knitted within 3 days, as I desperately needed a cardigan for a wedding I had been invited to – hence the name. A slight oversize, yet classic cardigan with a deep and elegant v-neck shaping. The cardigan is knitted bottom up. Along the sleeves and the button bands, an I-cord edge is knitted for a neat and feminine finishing.
