This classic unisex cardigan in nine sizes (XS/S/M/L/1X/2X/3X/4X/5X) has a relaxed fit and a sleek look when knit in a soft yarn blend. Seams accented with ribbed detail draw the eye upward, while dramatically deep button bands create a focal point at center front to continue a flattering line. The collar can be worn standing up or folded down. Its five simple pieces are knit flat, bottom-up and seamed, making this garment a very portable, quick knitting project Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit, purl, increase/decrease seamed GAUGE 19 sts and 27 rows = 4 inches in stockinette on larger needles (unblocked) 18 sts and 31 rows per = 4 inches in pattern on larger needles (washed and dried flat) SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 34.25(37.75, 41.25, 45, 48.5)[52, 55.5, 59, 62.75] inches/87(96, 105, 114, 123)[132, 141, 150, 159] cm around chest (buttoned) to fit with 4 to 6 inches of ease SUGGESTED YARN 2250 yards of DK weight PREFERRED BRAND/YARN Bare Naked Wools Kent COLORWAY White Sand

I am the owner of Knitspot - knitting patterns, clubs, and artisan yarns. I am a life-long knitter with a background in the fashion and graphic design fields, and began designing clothing, knitwear and accessories during the 1970s. I teach and write about knitting, spinning, and designing at my blog, Knitspot. I live and work in Ohio with David, who loves wool, too. My design work/profile has been included in Knitty, The Knitter, Interweave Knits, and Twist Collective, Sock Club, Brave New Knits, as well as several upcoming publications. The complete catalog of Knitspot patterns is available for browsing and purchasing at Knitspot yarn clubs are reknowned for perfect pairings of luxury yarn and design, as well as the rollicking good fun in our Ravelry clubhouse where members meet, chat, and knit through club projects together. Our Bare Naked yarns are as close to the farm as a knitter can get, using fresh fiber produce from regional growers which is then spun into yarn at smaller artisan mills with which I have worked over the years. The collection is focused on single-breed pure wool yarns and exotic blends, with colors that range an entire array of natural tones—yarn the way nature made it.
