Pomegranates are a special, and some say magical, fruit. With pomegranate cables ringing hem and cuffs, as well as rising up the fronts, you will feel special, too. Finished with Seed Stitch edges worked as you go, this one-piece cardigan with a flattering squared neckline and special buttons will have you ready to work your magic in no time.

This pattern is part of a bundle of four inspired by The Unicorn Tapestries at The Cloisters in New York City. Pomegranate Cardi comes from the magnificent tapestry known as The Unicorn in Captivity, where the Unicorn lounges beneath a pomegranate tree, which drips arils and juice upon his snowy hide.

Pattern is provided in both charted and written formats professionally formatted (by me!) to ensure you have everything you need to create your own beautiful Pomegranate Cardi.
