Coral Reef

A mosaic patterned cropped v-neck cardigan emulates the colourful experience of a ride in a glass-bottom boat.

This cardigan is a wonderful way to use up your fingering weight yarns. The mosaic pattern stays the same but its appearance changes with each new colour. The cardigan is edged with a funky fringe on the body bottom and sleeves and with a rolled stockinette edging on the v-neck.

2 groups of colour ranges, 8 dark colours and 7 light colours.

Worked back and forth on circular needles. Written knitting instructions with chart.

Price of Printed Pattern: $10 CAD
