Combining the elegant drape of a sari with the casual fit of a cardigan for a unique sweater that could only be called Sari Cardi!

While wearing this cardi, I keep getting compliments on my scarf? shawl? or wait, is it a sweater? And from the back, it does look like I have a shawl thrown over my shoulders. From the front, you suddenly realize the “shawl” is breaking all the rules about how a rectangle can wrap and drape, and begin to suspect there is something else going on! Personally, I consider this to be a sweater first. A sweater that just happens to grow into a crescent shawl on one side. This cardi uses short rows (wrap and turn), increases and decreases, stitch markers, knit and purl, and a bit of grafting at the underarm. Most rows are nice mindless “tv knitting”, and I tried to keep counting to an absolute minimum.

This Cardigan was originally knit in SpaceCadet Thebe yarn. Almost any drapey lace or fingering weight yarn will be a suitable replacement.
