Welcome to the Knit Collage Spring 2021 Knitalong! Our knitalongs are wonderful way to learn and grow in new ways. We accomplish that through learning knitting skills, accountability (to stick to your knitting goal!), round the clock knitting support and connection with other like-minded makers. So we hope you’ll consider joining in!

About the pattern:

The Flower Power Cardi was a such a beloved style from the past FALL 2020 KAL, we’ve brought it back again for the Spring 2021 KAL as a bonus pattern and kit. This fashion forward sweater with large flower pops is such a wonderful statement piece. Using a side-to-side construction, this cardi uses the intarsia method of colorwork, adding big blocks of color without having floats of stranded colorwork. The sleeves have a modified dolman style fit. Rock your flower power with one big flower on the left sleeve and another on the right front!

In the video tutorials, Amy will guide you through every step of how to make this sweater from start to finish. Please make sure to check out our test knitters project pages on Ravelry to see this style on a range of beautiful bodies!
