Calligraphy cardigan has been a top selling Knitbot pattern since 2011, with many beautiful versions completed by knitters around the world. It’s truly a classic design for the modern knitter, with a fitted body knit in dk weight yarn, a wide collar, and oversized buttons.

The original version of this pattern was released as an individual pattern and still available for purchase and download from this page.

A revised version of this pattern is available in the book Home & Away: Knits for Everyday Adventures!

The pictured sweater from this book 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 bands are picked up and knitted last.

If you are in-between sizes, I suggest sizing up for this design. 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.
