The Kirra Cardi is a super bulky, super soft and airy spring cardigan perfect for crisp mornings and sitting by the campfire. The written pattern includes photo tutorials, video tutorial, and is written in three sizes: Large, Medium, & Small. Child sizes coming soon :)! Pattern tested and approved by the wonderful women in my life who share a love of crochet. Thank you beautiful ladies for working all the kinks out with me on this creation. <3 <3 <3. I hope you enjoy it, and remember - sharing is caring :). If you love it, please share with your friends.

The inspiration for this came from my beautiful niece Kirra, she has blonde hair and when she held this yarn next to her, it all just came out! I wanted to create something like 1975 say hello to 2018, and it’s teen approved!

You can find it here on Etsy

I hope you enjoy creating this cardigan, and learn something new in the process.  The pattern contains a companion video to help you work the more complicated rows and you can find that link within the pattern.

SKILL LEVEL:

Intermediate – but if you are an ambitious beginner – this pattern is for you!  It is mostly basic stitches, but I threw in a few front post stitches to add some texture.  If you have any trouble with those, don’t worry, I created a full video tutorial to help you work the pattern.  You can find the link inside the pattern.
