Plaid Party Cardi Kit
The Plaid Party Cardi Kit is here, a beloved design from our Fall 2020 KAL! The Plaid Party Cardi is all about a bohemian twist on a traditional plaid pattern. The classic plaid pattern is created by using a combination of reverse stockinette and slipped stitches that is simple and addictive to knit. Have fun with this one and watch how easy it is to create your own completely unique plaid fabric! This cardi is worked seamlessly from the bottom up with set-in sleeves and I-cord or ribbed front edges. A fun and texture rich knit resulting in a fabulous heirloom and timeless treasure for years to come.
