|Wispy by Hannah Fettig|
Wispy is one super popular pattern. And, I can see why. It's a quick, fun multi-directional knit. You start with a shrug worked horizontally from sleeve to sleeve. Then you pick up around the circumference and work ribbing. Most of the stitches are bound off, but one side continues on to make the skirt. So, it's a lovely design, but not for me. Why? The angle of the shrug section, as well as the reverse angled skirt draw visual focus to the bust. This is fine if you are an A-cup waif like the model. But, on a well-endowed person, it's a lot of attention. (Unless that's the kind of attention you are looking for.)

There are lots more good options for a summer third piece cardi, so I'll continue posting on them this week.
