Charlotte by Kristen TenDyke
Knit in Malabrigo Verano, Jay Blue

We are excited to unveil the latest yarn & pattern collection from Malabrigo! The Charlotte cardigan is just one of the gorgeous patterns knit in Malabrigo Verano. Verano is a soft, 100% Pima cotton, DK weight yarn that is a fun & fantastic departure from their usual fibers. This hand-dyed cotton will not disappoint, as the Malabrigo design team was committed to delivering their intense, multifaceted colorways on a cotton yarn.

Worked from the top down, the Charlotte cardigan is perfect for chilly evenings. The back and fronts are worked separately to the underarm, then joined and worked in one piece to the lower edge. The sleeves are picked up around the armhole and worked in the round down to the cuff. The pattern requires 5-8 skeins Verano (1,025-1,640 yards DK weight yarn). All of the Verano patterns would also work well in Cascade Ultra Pima.
