Like its knitted twin, the KNIT SAFARI Unicorn Loopy Cardi is designed to be big, bold and a crocheted statement. The magical unicorn-inspired shades invoke a touch of mystical glam to your wardrobe, and put a smile on your face while your crochet hook does the hard work. Go low-key luxe and crochet this chunky cardigan in one shade, or turn up the volume and pick every colour!

The Unicorn Loopy Cardi is worked seamlessly from the hem to the underarms, to reduce bulk as much as possible. The sleeves are crocheted in the round from the cuff to the shoulder. Instructions and a photo tutorial of the loopy stitch is included in the pattern. The hardest part? Picking the colours!
