Pattern Description:

Troian (pronounced troy-an) is a sexy but sophisticated cardigan featuring cables, stockinette, and simple rib details. The cuffed, elbow length sleeves draw the eye up and to the textured front and fun snap and toggle closures placed from the collar to just below the bust.

This cardigan is knit seamlessly from the top down using set-in sleeve construction. The yoke and bodice are knit first to the bottom hem. Stitches are then picked up around the armholes for the sleeves, which are initially shaped by using short rows and then worked seamlessly in the round from the top down.

Gauge:

20 stitches and 28 rows = 4" (10 cm) in stockinette stitch, using larger needles

Change needle size if necessary to obtain correct gauge.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • At high bust, button bands overlapping: 27 1/2 (29 1/4, 32, 34, 36, 37 1/4, 40, 41 1/2, 44, 45 1/4, 48 1/2, 50)" / 70 (74, 81, 86, 91, 95, 102, 105, 112, 115, 123, 127) cm
