Pattern Details

"Courie in" is a Scottish phrase meaning to "snuggle up" - and it's the perfect name for this oversized, supremely warm, wrap front cardigan. This is a real winter warmer, ideal for nestling into with a mug of cocoa on a cold day. And it's so quick to knit! This cardigan has a slightly unusual construction. Sleeves are knitted first from cuff to centre back, then both sleeves are joined with a three needle bind off. Stitches are picked up at the bottom edge from armpit to armpit and worked down to the hem to form the back. Then stitches are picked up round the front to form the garter stitch wrap front. This pattern will be free until the end of November 2016. After that, it will be replaced by an improved version available for $7. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit and purl cast on and bind off work flat and in the round pick up and knit stitches work a three needle bind off GAUGE 10sts x 17 rows in double moss stitch after blocking. Please note that the weight of the cardigan whilst damp will cause it to stretch more than a small swatch will.
