Re-introducing the Barnsdall Cardi - Now featuring Stroll Mini Packs!

The Barnsdall Cardi is back, and it’s all about embracing the art of ombre with ease. Previously seen in the Color Shift collection, this cardigan has been re-imagined using the Stroll Mini Pack. With our bundle of five coordinating skeins, you get to play artist as you create a seamless ombre masterpiece.

Designed for relaxed knitting, the Barnsdall Cardi is worked seamlessly from the top down in Stockinette stitch, with armhole stitches held while you complete the body. The easy-to-memorize stripe pattern is provided both written and as a chart. Knit with fingering-weight yarn on size 6 needles, it’s airy and drapey, perfect for layering year-round.

Instructions include how to calculate color changes for different numbers of colorways.

Purple stripe sample photos show the Stroll Fingering Mini Pack in “Moody Blues” 44539.

If knitting with a solid color CC, 150 (150, 150, 200, 200, 250, 250, 250)g of yarn required.
