Buffalo Rose Cardigan Kit by Karel Chan of KC Knitting Co.


Buffalo Rose Cardigan is a seamless, drop-shoulder gender-neutral cardigan with the Buffalo Rose motif prominently placed around the body: hardy, geometric buffalo check with an overlay of bold, yet delicate roses in full bloom. The rich colors, crisp sturdiness, and bloomed softness of Ritual Dyes Elder create a gorgeous, structured, and incredibly wearable cardigan that you’ll want to throw over anything and everything.

It’s also highly customizable, with the following elements to choose from:

• Colorwork block placement (higher vs lower on body)
• Standard collar or shawl collar
• Variable sleeve lengths depending on arm length
• Variable body lengths from high hip to mid-thigh
• Continuous rose motif around the body or variable placement (e.g., one on each front panel, 3-4 across the back)

What you'll get:

  • All the yarn needed to complete your project
  • Please note this yarn kit does not include a printed copy of the pattern, you will need to purchase that separately on Ravelry 

If you have pre-order items along with in-stock items they will ship together once your pre-order items are available. If you have both pre-order and in-stock items and you prefer to receive the in-stock items first, please your orders separately.
