Introducing Cabo Cardi

I’m so excited to be a part of “First Light,” Knit Picks’ first original pattern collection. My contribution is a pattern I’ve called Cabo Cardi:


This sleeveless cardigan is knit in one piece and then seamed up the sides. From the pattern description:

The Cabo Cardi is a fitted cardigan that works beautifully as a transitional piece on mild spring days to cool nights at the beach. A vining lace pattern travels up the cardigan and a drawstring is pulled through a row of eyelets along to waist to create a comfortable fit with ease.

The Cabo Cardi is knit in one piece from the back hem to the beginning of the neckline, then split and both front sides are worked separately. Once the main knit piece is completed, it’s folded in half and the side seams are sewn together. The cardigan is worked without shaping as the drawstring will pull in the waist.




This pattern is a quick knit on size 7 needles and affordable, too! If you’re just buying the single pattern and the suggested yarn, your total cost will be between $19.94 and $31.60 depending on what size you’re knitting up.

That said, I encourage you to buy the full collection. For only $19.99 you get 14 beautiful patterns — that’s less than $1.50 per pattern!
