This fashion forward sweater with large flower pops is the epitome of a statement piece. Using a side-to-side construction, this cardi uses the intarsia method of colorwork, adding big blocks of color without having floats of stranded colorwork. The sleeves have a modified dolman style fit. Rock your flower power with one big flower on the left sleeve and another on the right front.
