Marly Cardi (2023Q)

Two strands of Alpaca Heather come together to make the Marly Cardi: a boxy cardigan with a marled texture! Its straightforward construction makes the marled yarns shine - we chose Very Vivid and Magenta for a brilliant purple combination.

We swatched other color combinations for more marling inspiration. You can see the full Alpaca Heather palette here to find which two to make a Marly Cardi!

This cardigan is worked in one piece from the top down. After completing the raglan yoke, the stitches are divided for the lower body and sleeves. The body is worked back and forth in rows down to the lower edge, and the sleeves are worked separately in the round down to the cuffs.
