The Design

"A sweet, seasonless cardi."

A timeless little hip-length cardi always manages to look modern. Ours has classic details: a pretty jewel neckline; knit-along button bands; full- or bracelet-length sleeves. In eight sizes and with two sleeve lengths, you can make this cardigan just right for you.

The Quintessential Cardigan becomes warm-weather friendly when knit in Berroco Modern Cotton DK. This sleek yarn creates a fabric with a soft, supple hand, fabulous stitch definition, and gorgeous drape. The balance of Pima cotton and Modal rayon means it’s hard-wearing and machine-washable. Perfect for summery activities!

Errata & Clarifications

KNITTER'S NOTES
To be sure your garment turns out the right size, it’s important to swatch until you get the correct gauge. Stitch gauge determines the fit; row gauge affects the length.

Cast on 33 sts for a nice big swatch approx. 6"/15cm-wide; work in St St for 6"/15cm; bind off loosely. Measure and note unblocked gauge for reference when knitting.

Wet block your swatch; let rest for a day or two. Measure again—gauge may change after it relaxes.

Cardigan is worked at 22 sts/30 rows = 4"/10cm. Measure center 4"/10com of swatch (edge stitches may be distorted).

If you have more sts or rows per "/cm, your gauge is a little tight; try swatching again on larger needle. If you have fewer sts or rows per "/cm, your gauge is a little loose; try again on smaller needle.
