Love Letter Cardi ~ Knitalong Kit
Registration closes tonight, April 21st at 11:59 PT! These patterns and the knitalong will not be available for another 6 months.
Welcome to the Spring 2021 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. So we hope you'll consider joining in! Watch the videos below to learn what sets them apart!
About the pattern:
Spring is in the air and it is the perfect time for the Love Letter Cardi! This lovely style is knit top down with stunning design features such as set-in sleeves, a cropped body, lacy ruffled collar, and pleated sleeves with a finished picot edge. Wildflower mini skeins are used to finish the edges of the lace collar, as well as striped throughout the sleeves to keep them lightweight and cool. The entire body is worked seamlessly except for the lace collar and sleeve pleats. This flattering cardi is perfect for styling with a sundress or all the warmer weather clothes!
In the video tutorials, Amy will guide you through every step of how to make this sweater from start to finish. Tap the link here to check out our Ravelry page for this style and see the Love Letter Cardi on some of our lovely test knitters!
