Surtsey

Surtsey-header

Surtsey is a baby cardigan with a little simple colorwork to add a special touch! Knit from the top down in one piece for minimal finishing, Surtsey knits up fast to make a charming baby shower gift or homecoming sweater. It’s also a great way to use up those special sock yarn leftovers wasting away in your stash. Solids and semi-solids will show the colorwork best, but the color possibilities are endless. Have fun!
