I can’t believe it’s already almost Christmas! The weeks are flying by so fast I can’t even keep up. I pretty much did all the Christmas shopping for my kids last weekend, so I’m feeling set there. I was planning on doing Christmas baking last week, but we had a nasty illness go through the house, so that got put on the back burner. I needed a little instant gratification, so there was born the Zola Crop cardi.
I picked up my big ol 25mm needles and a bunch of scrap wool yarns I had laying around and got to work. A few hours of work led to this cardigan.
It’s got a cropped fit, fun stripes, and a basic oversized fit. You know that’s how I roll.
Since it’s got a cropped length, there’s really not much bulk feel going on. It’s easy wearability and perfect for those cold winter evenings. Or days.
It’s a perfect sweater for beginners to try out! You won’t spend too much time on it and you can get a good feel for the 25mm needles. If you knit any of my winter sweaters, they’re almost all on 25mm needles. I love using the big needles because it really showcases the softness of the yarn.
