Calling all crafty knitters! Don’t you love our new top-down knitting pattern for the perfect summer cardigan? Our That Girl! Summer Jacket by Nikol Lohr is a retro-inspired cropped summer jacket goes from sunshine to summer nights or chilly air-conditioned offices. Starting next week, join Nicole and I in our special knit-along to make this cute cardi. I will be knitting the pattern and showing off my progress, while Nikol will show you how to vary the pattern and will also make a collarless/longer cardigan with a sleeve variation. She’ll also share info on how you can adjust the pattern size for teens, kids, and babies.
The CotLin DK yarn from Knit Picks is an affordable yarn with lots of great colors. At just $2.79 a ball you can’t go wrong. (I chose the linen color for my sweater.) You can also use any other yarn of your own choice. Just make sure to check your gauge to fit the pattern.
