PROJECT Quick Sand

Quick Sand

I need a little cardie to wear with summer dresses and I just cast on for Quick Sand. It’s a quick & simple top-down knit made with Quince & Co Kestrel (on SALE until the end of July)!

The project isn’t particularly complicated, there are short-rows that you can skip (the form the shaping in the back). One Caveat: the pattern formatting is a little unusual, so before you start I suggest you go through the pattern with a pencil and circle the numbers that apply to you. You might also want to write out some of the instructions in longhand, just to keep things clear in your mind.

I’m making some modifications, mine will be cropped and I’m using slightly larger needles to achieve a looser tension. I’ll update all the details as I go in my Ravelry project notes.
