Keep it Simple Cardi Kit (Yarn + Pattern)

Keep it Simple Cardi Kit (Yarn + Pattern)

The Keep It Simple Cardi is exactly as it is titled: a simple and elegant middle-length cardigan that is sure to become a staple in your fall and winter wardrobe. The pattern features a panel construction method with seaming only in the shoulders and for the pockets (which are optional). You can choose the difficulty level of the trim stitches in the cuffs, body, and pockets to suit your crochet skill level. The cardi has a very natural, “just-right” positive ease throughout the bust and sleeves - not too tight but also not too baggy. Because of the options within, this pattern is suitable for the beginner to intermediate crocheter with several tutorials and visual supports available including images, schematics, and videos.

Due to the nature of hand-dyed yarn, skeins can differ slightly both between and within dye lots. Alternating skeins is recommended.

While I do my best to both capture and portray accurate colourways, please note that there may be differences due to monitors.

Despite fully exhausting, washing and rinsing all skeins, to remove excess dye, some bleeding may still occur. Hand washing yarn is recommended - in cold water to limit the bleeding - and lay flat to dry.

Please note that all yarn is dyed in a pet-friendly household.
