Cancun and the Baby Sideswipe Cardi
I'm excited to introduce a new yarn that will make your knitting easier & more interesting, Finlanda's Cancun. Created from a classic linear thread the vibrant alternating colors in Cancun make a lively and playful pattern while knitting in a simple stockinette. Crafted of 75% wool and 25% acrylic this easy care yarn has a pretty color selection just right for garments and accessories for boys and girls.

And Lorna Miser designed the adorable Baby Sideswipe Cardi knit in Cancun. This easy & striking baby cardigan shows off the self striping effect of Cancun brilliantly. The no sewing construction is easy. This drop shouldered cardi is great for boys or girls, just choose which side to put the buttons.
