Skill Level:

advanced skill level requirement Expert

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • stranded colorwork
  • picking up stitches

Pattern Description:

Knit in the round with steeks for armholes, front opening, and sleeves. Never steeked before? Grellow Cardigan includes a photo tutorial to walk you through the process of using a sewing machine to secure your steeks.

Pattern includes full schematics; fair-isle charts for every portion of the sweater, including waist shaping and other areas of increases/decreases; and detailed instructions that don't leave you guessing.

Substitute a fingering weight yarn for either of the yarns listed-try to stick with wool or wool blends. Sock yarns would be a great choice!

Email me upon purchase of this pattern, and I'll send you the pdf tutorial on steeking!

I've been driven to create for as long as I can remember. Although I'm concentrating on knitting right now, I also love to sew, weave, and crochet.
