Great review and beautiful cardi! I especially like Try 3, where you wrap it like a blouse!

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

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!

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!

Beautiful - I so love these you may wonder why I haven't got off my duff and made my own - well at least the fabric is here LOL. Love the colors you chose and as always a helpful review

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.

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

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

Nata, both cardis are lovely. Well done!
