Cozy yet elegant, comfy and warm, this is the perfect cardigan to snuggle up in at storytime. Just enough ribbing to be distinguished… and just enough garter stitch to be adorable! With subtle worked-in garter stitch elbow “patches”… A double-breasted front and cozy shawl collar… And optional inset pockets hidden behind a wide ribbed hem to stash away treasures…
A fast and easy knit, this cardigan is worked from the top down seamlessly. The body is worked flat; the sleeves are worked in the round. Stitches are picked up along side edges and neckline to work buttonbands and collar. Optional pockets. Pocket lining requires seaming.
Skills: casting-on, knitting, purling, knitting in the round, increasing, decreasing, knitting on dpns, picking up stitches, yarn over, seaming (only if working pockets).
Gauge: 14 stitches and 20 rows = 4 inches in stockinette st
Approx yarn requirements: 250 (275, 300, 350, 400, 450) yds or 230 (250, 275, 320, 370, 415) m of chunky or heavy worsted weight yarn
