Boothbay is a cocoon of a cardigan, cradling you with its cozy garter stitch collar. Knitted in worsted weight yarn, the long body and wide open front make it perfect for everyday wear.
The pictured sweater is knitted seamless from the top down. If you prefer seamed knits, a second set of instructions is included to knit the cardigan in pieces. This will yield the same result. For more on why you might choose one construction method over the other, see page 40 of Home & Away!
In both versions, the collar is picked up and knitted last.
If you are in-between sizes, I suggest sizing down for an open cardigan like this one. When choosing your size it is always a good idea to check your actual body measurements against all the measurements given in the pattern schematic.
This pattern is exclusive to the book Home & Away Knits for Everyday Adventures!
