Katula Cardi Crochet pattern release and yarn giveaway

The Katula Cardi is belted cardigan (although I like the way it looks without the belt just as much). I can’t say it’s the easiest pattern I’ve ever written but anyone with a little experience with garments shouldn’t have an issue. The skill level is intermediate according to the Craft Yarn Council standards. If you’re following along with my Kram Cardi CAL this would be the perfect garment to try as a next step up.
