A beloved style from our Fall 2021 KAL, the Dreamy Cardi Pattern is all about highlighting our most unique yarn, Dreamland. As you knit Dreamland, little flower appliques, ribbons, sparkles and fun trims pop up to meet you! All of this goodness is handspun right into this unique art yarn. Design-wise, this cardi is a seamless style worked flat from the top down. The stitches and techniques are simple, making this design ideal for beginner or first time sweater knitters or really anyone who wants to knit with this happy yarn.
