Short Description: Lilas Cardigan by The Yarniad. Lilas, French for “lilac”, is the product of inspiration from some beautifully colored cotton yarn. It is knit from the top down in one piece and requires no seaming at the end. Its big, floppy collar and relaxed style make for a chic and versatile piece that looks fantastic layered with long sleeves or over tanks and dresses. Quick and simple, this is a great sweater for beginning knitters.
