As winter goes and spring arrives, we can see a multitude of wild flowers in the fields. The daisy stitch used in Spring is Pink celebrates that time of year when nature awakes and puts on its colorful robe.

Spring is Pink is a classically shaped cardigan which looks great worn over your favorite summer dress or skirt. Shaped seamlessly from the top down and incorporating simultaneously set in sleeves, Spring is Pink uses the daisy stitch to create diagonal lines of texture. Choose your favorite look: cropped or long cardigan with short, medium or long sleeves. The possibilities are endless. This cardigan will quickly become a staple in your wardrobe.

As with most of my cardigans, Spring in Pink is knitted top down, completely seamlessly with set in sleeves knitted simultaneously with the body. No short rows required.
