Daisy Chain Cardi Kit
The Daisy Chain Cardi is all about playing with a yarn that brings a little bit of joy, whimsy and fun into your day-to-day life! As you work this cardigan, have fun seeing which trim comes next as you knit along. This cardi is knit on big needles in an open and airy stockinette stitch pattern. You’ll piece the cardi panels together as you go, pick up stitches around the armholes and knit your sleeves. The very last step is picking up stitches along the cardi edges to create a ribbed edge border.
* The yarn needed to complete this project, including 5 - 9 skeins of Daisy Chain yarn (required yarn amount varies upon size you purchase).

If you want it to have less positive ease, then size down, and if you want an oversized fit, then size up. The sample is shown in a Size 1 on a 34” / 85 cm bust with 0.75” / 2 cm of positive ease. Please note the sleeves are more fitted when compared to the body ease and it is recommended to consider all aspects of the garment before choosing your final size.
