Pattern Release: Boudicca Cardigan

The next release from Legendary Knits, V3 is my Boudicca Cardigan.  (Two more to go!)


Knit from Wooly Wonka Fibers Freya DK, this is a lightweight cardi featuring a pretty Celtic cable motif up the center back, flanked by small rope cables.  It features waist shaping and set-in sleeves. (Sample was knit in the colorway "Woad").


The front has a repeat of the small rope cables, and a wide ribbed button placket with a nod towards a bit of military styling.


My inspiration was Boudicca, queen of the Iceni tribe in Britain.  A legendary Celtic figure, she led her people into battle against the Roman army, and although defeated by the Romans, she was revered as a symbol of of British nationalism (as well as being a totally kick-butt kind of gal!).
