What you need to know

Crafted from organic cotton yarn, this advanced cardigan pattern showcases a vibrant tulip pattern on the yoke.

What better way to celebrate Mother Nature’s handiwork than with a flower power cardi? It’s worked in one piece up to the armholes, which eliminates the need for side seams. Using a circular needle will help accommodate the large number of stitches and also take the weight off your wrists while you work.

Top knit tip

The left and right fronts and the back of this cardigan are worked in one piece up to the armholes, which is why you need to cast on so many stitches.
