Cardinia Wrap is named for the Australian Aboriginal word for Dawn. The layers of soft blue and dark and light neutrals with the star-like eyelets are evocative of the dawn light. Cardinia is a substantial wrap, perfect for the coolest of days. Worked from the bottom up, this is a straight-forward knit to enjoy with your favourite show.
Suitable for advanced beginner knitters.
