Douglas Cardi KAL

- By Michelle H.
A KAL to knit the new Douglas Cardi by designer Andrea Mowry!
‘The Douglas Cardi is a grandpa-style cardigan complete with stripes, big pockets, and a relaxed fit. … This sweater is knit from the bottom up with afterthought pockets and a picked up button band.’
This KAL grew from Lisa and Michelle deciding that they both wanted to do this cardigan. Why not up the ante and include all of you. For this KAL you may use any yarn of your choice but of course bonus points for those who purchase at Yarn Twisters The pattern can be found here!

LOVE the colours you picked! As for swatching ... I did. But only because it's a big project that is supposed to fit me. I don't swatch for socks, hats or shawls. Or children's clothes.
