Exotic diva or sleek hipster? Dressing up or impromptu-on-the-town? Spontaneous drape of a shawl, or stay-put wearability of a cardigan? Why decide if you don’t have to? Introducing the cardi wrap: Half shawl – half cardigan, this clingy creation is only slightly more advanced than a scarf requiring a minimum of expertise to deliver a maximum style impact.
This ultra-versatile garment is going to become your new favorite thing to wear. With our two fully-illustrated sets of instructions, one in knit and the other in crochet hairpin lace, you will look absolutely hot, no matter how you decide to make or wear it. Your only tough choice will be deciding which is worse: The nagging friends who want one too? Or the non-stop interruption from strangers who want to find one of their own?
- Hairpin Lace Cardi Wrap (Pictured in Black): Does your inner gypsy crave earthy drama? Get the look without the hassle. Belying its delicate and complex-looking results, hairpin lace is an easy crochet technique that is fast to learn and quick to work up. See our free, online tutorial!
- Knit Cardi Wrap (Pictured in Blue): Thoroughly modern and cucumber cool. With its simple cable and dropped stitch technique, this body-conforming wrap works up quickly for its size. The sleeve shaping provides a snug and form-fitting counterpoint with its sculpted bell flare at the cuffs.
