Perhaps we never truly met
until I heard your voice of flowers
spill hydrangeas across the carpet
of my bedroom at 3 am.

This is a pattern for a cardigan worked from the top down and in the round, with a circular yoke, and using the Fair-Isle colourwork technique.
This pattern is intended for a more experienced knitter or knitters who are comfortable working from and extending chart patterning.

Since the pattern repeat is continuous all over the cardi, some design points are fixed. Please see schematic for all approximate finished sizes.

There is some room to customize, however, though you may have to make adjustments as you work the motif patterning.
