Deliciously comfortable, with a great big splash of “ooh la la”, Floozy is the cardigan for dancing, dreaming and feeling fabulous. She’s bold, she’s beautiful, she’s fantastic over dresses and skirts and wonderful teamed with boots and trousers.

Knitted from the top down, so you can try her on as you go, Floozy uses slipped stitches to create her stunning colourful yoke. You’ll just work one colour per row! No complicated colourwork, just simple, easy knitting that’s suitable for every level of knitter.

The wide range of sizes and options for different body and sleeve lengths make Floozy a great cardigan for everyone. Choose a size that gives you room to move, or one that shows off your gorgeous shape.

I had a great chat with Yarnfloozy about options within the pattern, sizing, techniques you’ll use, the yarn, colours and how to choose your yarn and purchase a kit, in Episode 93 of the Truly Myrtle Podcast.
