A colourful addition to any wardrobe, the Party Cardy is relaxed and polished, dressy and comfortable to wear. Designed to make the most of a beautiful mini-skein set or use up leftovers from your stash. The drop shoulder construction makes it the perfect layer over a dress or on its own. It features dramatic, wide sleeves finished with a beautiful lace cuff. Wear it open or buttoned for a polished look. The cropped body is finished with a lace hem for even more elegance. Colours are worked in even stripes, choose a neutral fade or a rainbow of colours to dress up any outfit or keep it simple with two colours or try a textural version alternating wool with kidsilk or Suri silk in the same colours.

Pattern includes both charted and written instructions for the lace section.
