Nata, both cardis are lovely. Well done!

Very nice cardis and also very good to know that it works well without the elastic at the cowl.

Both your cardis look lovely! I like the alterations you made to reduce the volume of fabric and it still looks pretty versatile!

These cardi-wraps turned out great. Your efforts to reduce the amount of fabric were well-rewarded, in both versions, and probably necessary with the fabric you used -- which looks very beautiful, both the red and the sand colored wraps.

Great review - thanks for all the pics. If the dress form mimics you, I think view 3 looks great on you. Love your sand version and of course I love the red!

Your cardis are beautiful. I have been dubious about this pattern because I am so short I thought I might be overwhelmed by fabric. Your version makes it look possible. Thanks!

Both are beautiful and bet it feels great to be cocooned in that soft, lighter-than-air knit.
