Inner Beauty Cardi Pattern

price: $10.00

Embrace the handmade look and inner beauty of stranded colorwork! The Inner Beauty Cardi combines texture and color mixing in a unique way. It is worked from the top down using stranded colorwork but the floats are the star of the show and face outwards onto the right side of your cardi. From there you knit your body and sleeves in a fun, bubble stitch pattern. An oversized shawl collar completes this cardigan for ultimate coziness. You can choose to work the colorwork in a gradient pattern or mix up all the colors. Have fun letting your inner beauty shine!
