Welcome to the Lion Brand Yarn Spring Knit Along! This spring we will be knitting the Rio Rancho Cardigan. It is a lightweight, flowing pattern that marries love of cardigans with love of shawls.
If you are like me, you have been eyeing Lion Brand Yarn’s newest yarn: Shawl in a Ball. I had the opportunity to crochet up a shawl recently, and one ball was just not enough to satisfy me! I am thrilled to say that this pattern uses 3 balls of Shawl in a Ball. It’s the perfect amount for this one size fits all cardigan, and a wonderfully affordable project!
Check out the video below to see some footage of this cardigan in action at the CHA Fashion Show this past winter.
I am knitting my Rio Rancho Cardigan in Mindful Mauve. I love the purple hues paired with grey.
