Pattern Details

Goodnough (pronounced "good-no") is an open front cardigan with 3/4-length sleeves, mirrored cable front bands, and A-line shaping. It is worked bottom up in one piece to the armholes, then divided for back and fronts. Some seaming is required: the shoulders are seamed, and the front bands are seamed at the back neck. The sleeves are worked top-down, in the round, using short rows to shape the sleeve caps. Goodnough is designed to be worn with 0-2 inches/0-5 cm positive ease, but can also look attractive worn with negative ease. The model in the photos is wearing it with a small amount of negative ease. Stitch patterns are given in both written form and charts. **Level of difficulty:** Advanced beginner **Sizes:** Women's S (M, L, XL, 1X, 2X) **Finished (Blocked) Measurements:** Bust circumference: 30.5 (34.5, 38.5, 42.5, 46.5, 50.5) inches/78 (88, 98, 108, 118, 128) cm Hip circumference: 32 (36, 40, 44, 48, 52)"/81 (91, 101.5, 112, 122, 132) cm **Yardage Estimates:** 950 (1,050, 1,150, 1,300, 1,450, 1,600) yards/870 (960, 1,050, 1,190, 1,325, 1,465) m DK or light worsted weight wool.
