Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Knit
  • Purl

Pattern Description:

I love the speed of working with a chunky yarn, however the results are not always flattering! This cardigan is worked side-to-side from the center of the back out, with flattering short rows creating a gentle flare at the bottom. The sleeves are worked with short row shaping and the sides are bound off together for a piece that needs minimal finishing. Vertical accent rows will make this the most flattering knit you have ever made from a chunky yarn!

Techniques uses in pattern are all detailed, these include:
Crochet Provisional Cast on
Single Row Button Hole
Three-Needle Bind Off
Left and right slanting increases
Wrap & Turn
