Punxsutawney Phil didn’t see his shadow (yay, early spring!), but Atlanta’s General Beauregard Lee saw his, predicting six more weeks of winter. The groundhog meteorologists are sending us mixed messages, making our wardrobe decisions difficult. Especially here in the south. What begins as a 30-degree morning can turn into a 60-degree afternoon and a 70-degree day can be followed by a 40-degree chiller. Layers are our only hope in getting through the temperature pendulum of these pre-spring days. So obviously this has us daydreaming about cardigans. Today we share four newly released cardigans perfect for layering.

Happiness Cardigan by Marrinda Herms

Fashion and function meet in this cardigan that we can’t wait to cast on. With oversized sleeves and a second strand of mohair, this cardigan is poised to be super cozy, while keeping you super warm. Knit one of three sizes – ranging from small to x-large – with two strands of bulky weight yarn held together in any color combination you choose.

Ivon by Veronik Avery

This seemingly simple cardigan is anything but. Part of Brooklyn Tweed’s Bridge City collection, Ivon is an adult layering piece that has unique, overlapped crescent cuffs, super sleek, buttonless open front, and set-in sleeves. The boxiness of the cardigan’s body and sleeves makes it a great choice for a variety of outfits and body types. Knit Ivon with worsted weight yarn and size US 6 and 7 needles.

Strikke Cocoon Cardigan by Tamara Kelly

A cardigan that can take you from lounging to lunch is something special, which is why we love this cardigan from Tamara Kelly. With Bulky weight yarn and size US 10.5 needles, work a large square of fabric and after a fold, some stitching, and some picked up edging, you will have a cardigan you won’t want to take off.

Water Bearer by Jacqueline Cieslak

With brioche front panels this cropped cardigan is a stunning layer to add to any outfit. Follow the pattern’s written instructions or follow along with one of the five video tutorials to work this top-down cardigan. Written for 12 sizes, Water Bearer calls for 850-1875 yards of DK weight yarn.
