Rainbow Party Cardi

a color celebration


$6.00

 

The Rainbow Party Cardi is designed for color lovers. Light and airy, this little cardigan is designed specifically for minis and stash-busting. It is knit from the top down using a simple, quick raglan yoke and stockinette body. The collar is then picked up around the entire inner edge. The garter stitch short rows create a dramatic, flowing rainbow collar that is worked in 5 individual color sections. The collar is widest at the bottom edge and narrowest at the neck. The construction of this cardigan will give knitters endless rainbow possibilities.
