Strata Cardigan crochet pattern - digital or hard copy
Strata Cardigan is a semi-fitted, drop shoulder cardigan - perfect with jeans over a strappy top, or as an extra layer when you are snuggling in the house. It has deliberately long sleeves so you can double over the cuff if you need to and keep the chill out.
The cardigan is crocheted sideways in rows to create panels and sleeves, which are then joined together before a trim is added for extra length and warmth. Using a simple two-row repeat of Herringbone half trebles and double slip stitches, you will make this aran/worsted weight cardigan in no time at all.

Product materials, sourcing and PoM Rating
This product was originated by me at Fay Dashper-Hughes Designs. This pattern was printed by me on paper made from 100% recycled fibre, using wind power.
Postage and Packaging
You can read all about P&P here.
The P&P costs applied are very transparent. No additional costs are added on, you simply pay for the cost of packaging and the cost of postage. I don't offer free P&P because what that usually means is that the cost of P&P has been added to the cost of goods. I think it is better to assume that my customers aren't daft and would rather have transparent P&P costs than the pretence of 'Free P&P' with inflated prices on the items that they are buying.
