High Fives Cardi Kit
The High Fives Cardi is the perfect blend of preppy and chic for those days where you want to be stylish and comfortable. Worked from the top down seamlessly, this cardigan is a modified drop shoulder style that has a slightly oversized fit. Stranded knitting is used throughout the body to showcase an argyle colorwork pattern, while simple lace is worked on the shoulders and throughout the sleeves. The colorwork and lace are beginner friendly so that you can successfully create a fun cardigan that is a great transition piece to wear between the seasons.
