Pattern Description:


This is a top down, swingy cardigan, designed to fit people of all body shapes and sizes. Once you get going, it's very easy and good in front of a television or during interventions, like when your 5 year old is putting Daddy's underwear in the freezer (this happened last Thanksgiving, I swear.)

Yarn Requirements - Aran or Chunky weight to get gauge of:
4 stitches/inch on US size 9 (UK 5.5mm) needles.
See sizing explanation below.

XS,S,M: 850 yards
L,XL,XXL,XXXL 1350 yards

There is the smaller size which fits people who wear up to a US size 12 shirt (UK Size 16) and a larger size which you will customize with your increases as you go along (all very carefully explained.) to fit your particular body type.

Suggested Yarns
Cascade Eco Wool (has a lot of yardage on it)
Valley Yarns Northampton Bulky (great price point)
Madelinetosh Chunky (which is what I used)
In UK/Ireland Debbie Bliss Rialto Aran
Rico Organic Chunky

Gauge 4 sts/6 rows to the inch on size 9 (5.5mm) needles.

Note - this pattern is not good with heavily variegated yarns as the moss stitch pattern is lost.

Thanks for looking - give it a try - it's fun!

I've slowly been building up my knitting design business as Lyme Disease edged me out of practicing emergency medicine. I love fiber, color, and knitting and I hope that you will enjoy my patterns.

Please visit my blog, which I've had for 6 years that focuses on home decor (I have a pink banister!), my funny family and knitting, of course.
