Carpe Diem Cardi Pattern

price: $10.00

The Carpe Diem Cardi is a fun easy-to-wear cardigan that’s quick to knit. Knit from the bottom up, in pieces, and then seamed, it features a reverse stockinette stitch front showing off all the bits of hand spun magic and little trinkets that pop up as you knit along with our whimsical Dreamland yarn. The back carries on with the reverse stockinette and also incorporates colorwork and an optional embroidery overlay. The colors are all tied together in the sleeves which feature a fun chevron stripe pattern. You can style it with or without the buttons, anything goes. After all, carpe diem!
