Beau Cardi is like a wearing a hug — it’s so cozy and snuggly, you’ll never want to take it off. Oversized with a striped yoke, ¾-length poofy sleeves, generous front pockets and a cute pompom-dangle, it’s the thoughtful details that make this cardigan extra special.
Knit in a chunky-weight yarn, Beau Cardi comes in one size and is knit flat, from the top down. The sleeves are picked up and worked in the round. You’ll have as much fun knitting this cardigan as you will wearing it.
