Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Be familiar with increases and decreases, knit circular and wrap&turn.

Pattern Description:

My main inspiration for Bettina Cardigan was to put to work what I have learned from fitting classes here at Craftsy and at knitting events about a great fitting. I really hope that people feel beautiful and confortable knitting and wearing it! My second inspiration was to create something that I would really love to wear anytime that has a girlie twist!

Bettina Cardigan is an easy going piece with a fit that flatters the body. The stitch motif creates a cute texture that highlights the body curves enhanced by subtle bust darts.
You can wear the little cardi with a camisole dress for a feminine look but it also looks great with your favorite jeans and t-shirt!

*** I'm sorry about my clumsy english! It's my attempt to communicate with knitters from all over the world!
