Wrap-Up Weather

Even though the temps are still in the 80s around here, I can feel the fall nip in the air, especially in the evenings. Time to get out your knit cardigan sweaters—or cast on a new one!

The Infinity Cardi-Wrap by Kristin Omdahl

How about the Infinity Cardi by Kristin Omdahl? It's featured in her video, A Knitting Wrapsody, newly available on Craft Daily!

All About the Infinity Wrap

This cardi-wrap begins with a large infinity motif that forms the sweater back. I used a self-striping yarn to emphasize the multiple directions of rows that make up the motif.

The sides are picked up along the edges of the back and are worked in a light and airy openwork pattern that resembles broomstick lace.

For no-sew construction, the collar and sleeves are picked up and worked outward from the body.

Wear this wrap hanging open or pinned at the front, or make long, I-cord ties attached to each side of the front at your natural waist, then wrap the ties around the fronts, loop them through the openwork, around the back, and finally, tie them in the front.

Lace detail

In her video, Kristin will show you how to work the short-row shaping and 3/3 crossed loops that the lovely lace detail shown at right.

She's so clever, that Kristin! Look at the amazing infinity design on the back of the cardigan. It's stunning. And she matched the yarn and design perfectly; both are showcased in the Infinity Cardi.

This is a masterpiece of knitting. And you can do it!
