Abbi Light is a lighter version of my original pattern Abbi Shawl Collar Cardigan (which used super bulky wool). It uses DK/sport-weight yarn and makes a perfect light layer for the warmer months of the year. Two versions are photographed1 with an after-thought button loop and one without. Once you complete your Abbi Light you can decide which version works best for you.
It has top-down raglan construction and is worked in one piece. Sleeves are split at the underarms and the body is worked in one piece to the hem. Stitches are picked up and worked in 2x2 rib to create the front bands and short rows are used to create the shawl collar. Sleeve sts are then transferred back to needles and bound off to create cap sleeve, although pattern can easily be tweaked to create longer sleeves.
23 stitches & 32 rows = 4" in St st

Im Elizabeth Smith and designing knitting patterns is my passion. I strive to create simple, modern designs and write patterns for them that are easy to follow and fun to knit. Most of my patterns are seamless and many are knit from the top-down. They are written with the beginner knitter in mind, providing lots of detailed instructions. I provide pattern support for all my designs so feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions-I love to help and make sure my customers enjoy the knitting process (not to mention the finished piece!)View all patterns by designer (36) »
