  • Meet the Dreamland Cardi! A perfect sweater for any occasion, the Dreamland cardi is a piece of wearable art that has an oversized, comfy fit to keep you warm and stylish.

    It is worked flat in pieces from the bottom up, the back and front pieces are seamed, and sleeves are worked in the round.

    This is a simple cardigan for beginners as the stitches are basic to allow for the yarn to shine.

    Your Kit Includes:
    • 8 (9, 10, 10, 11, 12) skeins Dreamland Yarn (100% wool, approx. 35 yds / 125 g)
    • PDF Pattern delivered by email

    (Samples shown in Boho Dance, and Court and Spark/A Case of You combos.)

    You will also need:
    • 15mm (US 19) 32-40” / 80-100 cm circular needle or size needed to obtain gauge (we stock KnitPro and Lykke in this size)
    15mm (US 19) double pointed needles for sleeves (or just Magic Loop with your circular needles)

    Skill Level: Beginner to Intermediate Knitter

    Finished Sizes:
    1 (2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
    46 (52, 58, 64, 68, 74)” / 117 (132, 147.5, 162.5, 173, 188) cm bust circumference.

    Recommended to be worn with 14-20” / 35.5-51 cm or more of positive ease. The fit of this cardi is up to you and your own personal preference. If you want it to have less positive ease, then size down, and if you want an oversized fit, then size up.

    Note that the sleeves are more fitted when compared to the body ease; consider all aspects of the garment size before choosing your final size.

    (Boho Dance sample is shown in a size 4 on a 36” / 91.5 cm bust with 28” / 71 cm of positive ease, and Court and Spark/Case of You sample is shown in a size 4 on a 32” / 80 cm bust with 32” / 80 cm of positive ease.)

    Knit Collage began when I (Hi, I'm Amy!) fell in love with hand spinning long ago. From that time on, creating a business that meshed with this creative passion became an obsession.  

    At the heart of my business and the podcast, is this idea that it's important to lean into all the things that make us weird or set us apart, all of those interests that others might not get. I believe these are our secret weapons, they make us unique and that they become our super powers.

    I hope to set an example of what's possible through my own work by creating a thriving business built on far out yarn and pattern designs. If this peaks your interest, definitely check out my podcast.

    The Knit Collage team also includes a my sister Jessie who handles everything from Pinterest to wholesale orders and Cheryl Kubat, our in-house knitting guru. She's here for any technical questions that may crop up!

    MEET THE SPINNERS

    All of the Knit Collage dyeing, carding and spinning takes place in Punjab, India by a team of 13 expert women.  When the business first started in 2010, I spent countless hours teaching this awesome Indian team how to craft my yarn designs on traditional spinning wheels. It was no easy feat getting it off the ground but now these women are true masters that spin and craft well beyond my skill level.

    They do it all - the spinning is just part of it!  At any time only 5-6 ladies are spinning while the rest card fiber, crochet tiny flowers, embroider sparkly paisleys, organize trims or check each skein for quality, the list goes on! Truly each yarn is specially handcrafted with love and care and represents a loving partnership between myself, the designer, and this talented group of women. 

    Through our tiny operation, I hope to create beautiful yarns that inspire and nurture your creative spirit. When you knit with our yarns, you support the livelihood of the Indian women who craft them as well as our US-based small business.

    If you're interested in seeing more photos, visit this blog post that is all about our last trip to India. I take two trips to India yearly and the best way to see behind the scenes is on my Instagram account. My next trip is slated for February 2019! Thanks so much ~ Amy @ Knit Collage
