Totally Biased: The Cardi
  0 customer reviews

Totally Biased: The Cardi is the first in a trio of related designs created to flatter a woman's curves. The bias of the fabric creates deep V-s in front and back. These V-s - along with dramatic waist shaping highlight an hourglass figure (or create the effect of an hourglass if it's not naturally occurring)! The Cardi has front sections that overlap generously and a flirty shawl collar. It is utterly stunning in Knit Picks Chroma Worsted!

Each garment in the Totally Biased collection comes in a wide range of sizes (XS to 5X) and can be worked to any length. They are worked entirely in garter stitch - which (in my humble opinion) is the very best stitch to use when color comes out to play. Whether your yarn has long, gently changing swaths of color, is hand-painted, dappled, or if you're simply creating stripes from your stash of remnants - garter stitch will make the colors pop!

The Cardi uses the following techniques: provisional cast on, directional increases and decreases; short rows; working in the round; button holes, and Jeny's Surprisngly Stretchy Bind Off. Measurements
Note: waist and bust measurement exclude the overlap at the front.
Bust: 31(33.5, 38.5, 42.5, 45, 47.5, 54, 58, 60) inches
