Aidez - An Open-Front Aran Inspired Cardigan Part One

Aidez - An Open-Front Aran Inspired Cardigan

Aidez is a cozy open-front cardigan with an updated take on the tradional Aran sweater. Knit in a bulky yarn, this seamed cardigan works up quickly- even with several different textures and cables. Designed by Cirilia Rose, Aidez is a feminine cardigan with shaping so although it is oversized, it looks comfy and cozy, not sloppy, and is the perfect updated grandpa cardigan for chilly days.
