Sister Plaid Party Cardi ~ Knitalong Kit
Welcome to the Fall 2020 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. Watch the videos below to learn more. In video 3, I dive deep into how making knitting a priority in my life has changed me for the better. So I hope you'll consider joining in!
About the pattern:
The Plaid Party Cardi is all about a bohemian twist on a traditional plaid pattern. beautiful design that allows 2 or more yarns to be knit together in a 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.
In the video tutorials, I'll 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 Plaid Party Cardi on a range of beautiful bodies!
