Enchanted Forest Cardi (Upgrade version of "Leafy Cardi")
This is an upgraded version of Leafy Cardi featured on Yarn Forward Magazine Vol. 17. It was substantially revised for a better fit and better finishing, and the collar is changed to be detachable.
Also it was graded into 5 sizes in a different way from what the magazine did, so the larger sizes include more design elements rather than increasing the size by filling more purl stitches in.
Moreover, the pattern is made of full size charts for all the parts of the garment, so that it’s not confusing to read. You can simply follow along the chart.
It is a batwing-shaped cropped cardigan with a detachable collar. You can wear it with the collar to keep you warm in a chilly weather, or without the collar when it’s less cold or to wear it under other outerwear.
It was designed with a negative ease, so the finished measurements are smaller than the body measurements.
