Pattern Description:

Capricious is the adult version of my "Sweet Poppy" cardigan. The design is inspired by memories of my childhood places; from hot desert roads, through fields upon fields of wild flowers, to the shores of Mediterranean Sea.

"Capricious" is my vision of poppy fields, always moving in the breeze, always colorful, and always simply unforgettable.

The cardigan is completely seamless and is worked from the top down. I have used an amazing technique developed by Susie Myers, "contiguous set-in sleeves", that allows shoulder shaping and construction of set-in sleeves without the use of a single short row

The pattern is written for DK gauge.
You can use dk, sport, 4-ply yarn for this project as long as you can get gauge.
Lighter weight yarns are recommended for a drapier cardigan.


22 sts x 29 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch on 4mm needles or size to obtain gauge.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • To fit 30" to 52" chest, XS to XXXL


  • 1000 to 1950 yards of fingering, sports, or dk weight yarn.
  • 4 mm circular needle
  • 3.5mm circular needle or dpns

You Will Also Need:

  • 4 stitch markers; stitch holders

Preferred Brand/Yarn:

Colour Adventures Dia Fingering


Any solid or semi solid colourway
