The Walker Cardigan is more feminine than the Blackett Cardigan, a classic, slightly lacy cardi in moss st and a leafy lace with a few bobbles thrown in on the sleeves. We like to think that the Walker girls would have been dressed in similar cardis when they were dreaming of being explorers in the Lakes aboard the Swallow. The bobbles are very easy, as is the leafy lace pattern on the fronts and the sleeves.
