You’re a goddamn butterfly in the making babes! This cardi has it all, the colours, the stripes, the textures. It’s a work of art…Just like you!
We’ll start with the simple stuff, shall we. A cropped fit, and ribbed edging, hem and cuffs. Phew, from there this feast for the senses will let you live out all your colour-combo-ing dreams! A striped body, two tone sleeve and a colour pop edge - go wild my friends!
Can I get a ‘Beginner-friendly baby’ from y’all! Yes indeedy, this cardi may look a bit flash but our little secret is that all you need are the olde knit and purl to create your very own masterpiece. Knit flat from the bottom up and seamed at the end, we do introduce circular needles but never fear, we’re with you all the way!
Skills you’ll master
Cast on, 1x1 rib, knit, purl, knit two together, purl two together, picking up stitches, cast off, horizontal and vertical invisible seaming, weaving in edges
