You need one of those little cardigans that you throw on over everything. But wouldn’t you like it to have a v-neck, flatter your figure, and be fun to knit with little finishing?

Solstice Cardi is the one for you! Stockinette with shaping where you need it keeps things smooth and simple. Garter stitch edges and integrated button bands give a crisp finish and are easy to work. Join us on The Sweater with Kathleen Dames podcast to knit this pattern with me!
