The possibilities are endless with this little cardi!

I have been wanting to design a pattern for those amazing gradient sets that dyers are offering lately… But while working on it I realized it would look amazing using any color combination for the collar: Stripes, variegated coordinating colorways, gradients, neon!

This open front cardi with its basic shape will allow you to play with your favorite yarns without getting a ‘busy’ result. Worked from the top down in one piece, the main part of the body grows quickly, leaving the fun part for the last ♥
