A little Curious is a one-piece cardigan-wrap that is worked vertically from one front edge to the other. The rectangular shape that is created makes for the long, draped front.

You can wear this knitted cardigan in various ways: you can flip the fronts over your shoulders, let them hang loose, or pin the fronts together with a shawl pin for a more elegant look.

The knitting should not become boring, because the various lace patterns help to make the knitting go by effortlessly. The long stretches of fabric make this a great project to take along, as the lace patterns are easily memorized.

The model shown is a size M2 (36” bust) and is knit with madelinetosh merino light in the colorway “Curiosity”.
