Any pattern, any yarn. Let’s get stitchin’!
Springtime is upon us, and there is nothing like a good cardigan for the chilly mornings and evenings. Here in the South, spring weather is especially fickle and we never know how to dress from one day (or hour) to the next. A light-weight cardi is just what we need. Let’s make one together!
This Cardi-along, like all of the -alongs at Rows & Roses, will err on the side of less rules rather than more. It’s not super structured, and the schedule is just to keep you on track IF you need it. If you can’t make the cast-on party, or you’re not quite halfway at the halfway mark, please don’t stress! This is supposed to be fun. As long as you wear your finished cardi in for the Fashion Show, you’re good.
Cast-on Party: Tuesday, March 8 at 2pm (I know it’s called “cast-on” but it’s just a term we’re using. This is for knitters AND crocheters!)
Halfway check-in: Saturday, April 2 (you can swing by for a WIP pic, or you can simply post your own on the page or in the group.)
Fashion Show: Friday, May 27 at 2pm
You can find all of the info, as well as a discussion thread, in the event on Facebook. If you can’t make it into the shop, or if you have pictures to post, questions to ask, or ideas to share, this is where you can do that!
Not sure which yarn you want to use? I’m here to help! All of the yarns shown below are excellent choices for a spring cardigan.
Some of these yarns have limited quantities (such as Divina, which has been discontinued by the manufacturer,) and others have not yet made it into the shop (the ones that say “sold out” on the website.) Don’t worry, we have plenty of choices for the cast-on party, and if you want to wait a little longer, MUCH more on the way.
I can’t wait to see everyone’s creations. Come to the cast-on party if you can make it, and be sure to bring your cardi into the shop to work on throughout the spring if you’re local. If you’re not local, you may post all of your pictures and ideas in the facebook event. There are tons of pattern ideas listed in the event discussion, as well, so if you’re needing inspiration, that’s the place to go.
As always, if you have any questions or concerns- whether about yarn, patterns, sizes, gauge, blocking, or anything else- I’m just a click or a phone call away.
