Deb Cardi {knitting pattern}

$9.50 CAD

This simple Cardi is designed to highlight beautiful yarn and comes with endless options to make it your own. For yarn, you can choose a chunky weight held single, hold fingering double or pair a DK-weight yarn with mohair. Use one color to keep it monochromatic, stash dive for those odd balls to make stripes, or gather your scrappy ends and paint them together. And, while you’re at it, why not add some sparkly stripes? Then, you can knit one of three versions of the Cardi or mix-and-match the sections to pick your own length, sleeve style or band texture. You can even make it fully reversible! Designed for a special friend, the Deb Cardi will have a special place in your wardrobe.
