I love Fayetteville’s network of trails, but sometimes the mornings are a bit brisk, the afternoons a bit breezy, and the evenings have a bite that make walking in a simple Tshirt insufficient. This light cardi is my solution - just enough to fend off a chill but not too bulky. The hood keeps the wind from crawling down your collar as it speeds you up a hill.

A note: I love hand dyed yarns but I do not love the pooling and dye lot inconsistencies that they often come with. So for the stockinette portions of this cardi, I worked from two balls of yarn at once, working 2 rows stripes from each and carrying the unused strand up the side.

This is pattern #9 in the Local Flavor collection. The designs in this collection were inspired by the town I live in and love. Photos are shot around town, and supplies, props, and additional garments are also local (to the best of my ability).
