Notes From the Designer:
•Drift is a cardigan that gives you the feeling of comfort and ease as you sip a relaxing beverage with your face to the sun.
•This design works up quickly with a simple rectangular structure and six row repeating pattern featuring intentionally dropped stitches that combine warmth with airiness, making it the perfect accessory for beautiful summer days that drift into unforgettable nights.
•We chose to make this in our luscious, gleaming Pearlescent Fingering yarn, but any draping fingering weight yarn you love will work. Lace or sport could be used too!
•Allow your cares to drift away with the wind as you make and wear this piece. For this moment, all is well.
•Click the Videos tab to watch a video of how to work the dropped stitches shown in this pattern. It's easier than you think! You can do it!!

"Just imagine becoming the way you used to be as a very young child, before you understood the meaning of any word, before opinions took over your mind. The real you is loving, joyful, and free. The real you is just like a flower, just like the wind, just like the ocean, just like the sun." Don Miguel Ruiz
This pattern is so easy and works up really fast. The instruction video for this pattern is very helpful. I am using EFA's sparkle fingering "Happy Snowman" and it makes me so happy. Can't wait to finish it.
I am loving this user friendly pattern. I am using EFA’s sparkly fingering yarn called Happy Snowman and it is working out so pretty.
