This is a fabulous shawl-collar cardigan which evokes a mandalic look in Mirai colorway #01, a terrestrial blend of brown, blue, green, and rust. Although we've kit'ed this pattern up with several color options from Noro's beautiful futuristic Mirai yarn. Choose whichever color suites your pallet.
This pattern begins with a V-stitch back panel, which is worked outward in two halves from a center-back foundation chain. Worked from the back panel's outer edges-leaving spaces for the armholes- the outer ruffle is crocheted in the round, alternating lacy long chains and V-stitch patterns.
