Dreamland Cardi Kit
Welcome to the Dreamland Cardi Kit. Originally released as part of our Fall 2020 Knitalong, this beautiful yet classic design showcases our Dreamland yarn so wonderfully. This unique yarn is inspired by the insanely amazing trim markets of India and is jam packed with gorgeous ribbons, flower appliques and novelty trims. Along with the yarn, you'll receive the PDF pattern via email as well.
About the pattern:
A perfect sweater for any occasion, the Dreamland cardi is a piece of wearable art that has an oversized, comfy fit to keep you warm and stylish. It is worked flat in pieces from the bottom up, the back and front pieces are seamed, and sleeves are worked in the round. This is a simple cardigan for beginners as the stitches are basic to allow for the yarn to shine.
