Selfish Cardi




Since I became a maker, December has been full of making for others...and I don't mind that at all.  It feels so great to compete orders and gift handmade goods to my friends.

But...it's nice to make things for ourselves too!

So when I was writing up this pattern, I knew I wanted to release it in December....in the middle of all your gifting and making.....here is a quick wip-wearable-cozy-cardi JUST FOR YOU!
It works up quickly with bulky yarn, no shaping, easily adjusted to any size (length or width), and definitely beginner friendly.

I hope you love making this!



Notes Before You Begin:
-this pattern consists of 5 panels (back, front left, front right, sleeves x 2) seamed together and the collar is crocheted around the front
-it can be adjusted to any size, the initial ribbing that starts each panel can be measured as you complete row by row (hold it up against your waist to see how long you need it to be)
-I used approx 5 skeins of Bernat Roving
