The Garden Party Sweater is a beautiful mix of yarns and stitches in a loose fitting rectangular cardigan shape. We especially love the juxtaposition of our Spun Cloud and printed Wildflower yarns together in this striped chevron stitch!

The grey sample is knit using these yarns and colors: Spun Cloud in Fog, Wildflower in Goldenrod, Sienna, Dusty Fleur, Petal and Tribal. This pink/ivory sample shown is a mix of many yarns - see the blog post I did about it on the Knit Collage website for the full scoop!

Fit note: This sweater is intended to have about 4” to 6” of positive ease at the bust. The model is wearing a size M/L and has a 36” bust. We recommend most people knit the M/L size. From our experience, the size M/L looks fantastic on every single person and all different body types. If you are larger than a 36” bust but prefer less positive ease, I recommend going with the M/L as well.
