Quintessential Cardigan Pattern

Quintessential Cardigan Pattern

“In 8 sizes and 2 sleeve lengths!”

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—all of which are clearly and expertly described in written instructions and quick guides. You’ll even be able to build (or review) your skills with a special technique: ‘clip & turn’ short row shaping.

We chose two superb fibers for this ultimate cardi. A sleek yarn, like Shibui’s dreamy new Lunar, offers tailored style. Lightweight mohair, like our favorite Rowan Kidsilk Haze, lends a feminine aura. With this choice of yarn, in eight sizes and with two sleeve lengths, you can make your cardigan just right for you.

This 8 page pattern includes:

  • Color photographs by the talented Jared Flood
  • A Special Technique—‘clip & turn’ short row shaping
  • Step-by-step guides for adjusting body & sleeve lengths, with fill-in-the-blank sections to help with the math
  • A wee tutorial on placing buttonholes
  • Instructions for swatching for gauge and fabric, and finishing and blocking your garment
