Sister Flower Power 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:
The Flower Power Cardi was a such a beloved style from the past FALL 2020 KAL, we've brought it back again for the Spring 2021 KAL as a bonus pattern and kit. This fashion forward sweater with large flower pops is such a wonderful statement piece. Using a side-to-side construction, this cardi uses the intarsia method of colorwork, adding big blocks of color without having floats of stranded colorwork. The sleeves have a modified dolman style fit. Rock your flower power with one big flower on the left sleeve and another on the right front!
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 Flower Power Cardi on a range of beautiful bodies!
**Please note this listing is for a kit using our Non Sparkle Sister Yarn and Mini Skein Sampler Kits. The Sample Shown on Amy used Sister yarn and the sample shown on the other model is shown in our Spun Cloud yarn which is spun with a strand of lurex and is available in another listing.
Here's what you can expect in our knitalong:
