The design for Kari is a softer, more playful interpretation of THAT iconic jacket (thank you for the inspiration, Coco!). The easy to work, two color Broken Seed Stitch pattern forms a perfect tweedy background for the beautiful mosaic that adorns the lower sleeves. Much fun can be had with color; even swapping the main and contrast color will lead to a totally different effect, so experiment, and knit yourself a lovely treat of a cardigan!
The Kari cardigan is worked from the top down. You start by casting on stitches for the back of the neck. The yoke is shaped using increases. Stitches for the front neckline are cast on. Once the yoke is finished the body and sleeves are separated. The body is worked down to the lower edge, with or without shaping.
Once the body is finished, the sleeves are worked in the round, down to the mosaic section. The mosaic section is worked flat. After the mosaic section is finished, the remainder of the sleeve is worked in the round to the lower edge of the sleeve.
You can easily adjust the length of the body and sleeves to suit your style and preferences.
