Just like the original, Jessie’s Girl Cardi is worked seamlessly from the bottom-up, features a lower back hem and short rows to create the slopped shoulders. It has a very loose stitch pattern, knit in a linen blend yarn, to create a very drapey silhouette just perfect for the spring and summer months (or year round if you live in a warm climate!).
I used Knit One Crochet Too’s Batiste yarn – I love this yarn because it blends linen with merino and silk. If you live in the Portland, Maine area we have lots of great colors available at KnitWit Yarn Shop (the sample will also be at the shop!). If you live somewhere else, check out your LYS or the yarn is also available online.
