French Press Cardi Kit

Our French Press Cardi Kit is a crochet kit that includes the cardigan pattern and Phullu yarn from Mirasol in an organza bag. Our kits include 3 hanks of Phullu, enough to make the S/M size. Add another skein to your order for the L/XL size. And you'll likely need a 5th hank for the XXL/XXXL size. Find Phullu in Suggested Products below. Our shoppe sample is made to pattern in the L/XL size so come check it out and try it on if you like! We've made kits in 6 colors but there are more colors of Phullu to choose from and you can shoppe those below as well.

The Pattern:
Let the coziness begin when you slip on the French Press Cardi, a casual, open-front crochet cardigan. This is a great reason to treat yourself with beautiful yarn in your favorite color.
Pattern Highlights:
-Practice new techniques and skills like extended stitches, applied ribbing, and picking up stitches to change crochet direction.
-This is considered a beginner-to-intermediate level pattern and includes a helpful supplemental video to help with some tricky parts.
-Pattern is written for 2-8” positive ease and includes directions for Small/Medium (40” finished bust, 750 yds), Large/XL (48” finished bust, 890 yds), and 2XL/3XL (56” finished bust, 1000 yds).

The Yarn:
Spun in Peru, PHULLU is the Quechuan word for “soft hair or down.” Baby alpaca and fine merino wool combine to create a down-like worsted-weight yarn that will prove difficult not to fondle. Light yet airy, this yarn will fool you; it is also super warm and will create cuddly-soft sweaters, shawls and accessories.
