Dreamland Cardi ~ Knitalong Kit
Welcome to the Fall 2020 Knitalong! Our knitalongs are wonderful way to learn and grow in new ways. We accomplish that through learning knitting skills, accountability (to stick to your knitting goal!), round the clock knitting support and connection with other like-minded makers. Watch the videos below to learn more. In video 3, I dive deep into how making knitting a priority in my life has changed me for the better. So I hope you'll consider joining in!
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.
This is a BONUS style for the Fall 2020 KAL. The video tutorials are for these four styles (not the Dreamland Cardi): Kaleidoscope Sweater, Plaid Party Cardi, Plaidtastic Scarf and the Flower Power Cardi. Of course we are here to help you at any time should you need it along the way :)
