Plaid Party Cardi Pattern

price: $10.00

Meet the Plaid Party Cardi Pattern, a favorite from our Fall 2020 KAL! The Plaid Party Cardi is all about a bohemian twist on a traditional plaid pattern. This beautiful design allows 2 or more yarns to be knit together in a chic yet classic plaid-like pattern. The plaid pattern is created by using a combination of reverse stockinette and slipped stitches that is simple and addictive to knit. Have fun with this one and watch how easy it is to create your own completely unique plaid fabric!  This cardi is worked seamlessly from the bottom up with set-in sleeves and I-cord or ribbed front edges. A fun and texture rich knit resulting in a fabulous heirloom and timeless treasure for years to come.

Recommended to be worn with 1-4” / 2.5-10 cm of positive ease at the bust, depending on your preferred fit. If you prefer to have a more fitted cardi that is worn open, choose a size with less ease, and if you prefer to wear your cardi buttoned, choose a size with more ease. There is a Ribbed Edge option for finishing your cardi that could provide an additional 1” / 2.5 cm when buttoned for those that prefer a more fitted and buttoned cardi. The French Vanilla sample is shown in a size 4 on a 39” / 99 cm bust with 5” / 12.5 cm of positive ease, and the Lavender sample is shown in a size 3 on a 36” / 91.5 cm bust with 4” / 10 cm of positive ease.
