Cardigan

Knitting for Anarchists
Knitting
January 2002
4.5 stitches = 1 inch
US 7 - 4.5 mm

This cardigan ‘recipe’ uses Anna Zilboorg’s strip-knitting technique. From the book:

“The All-Purpose Strip Knit anarchist sweater pattern invites endless variations on a single sweater. It is constructed in strips that attach to each other as you proceed. There can be as many or as few strips as you like; each strip can be designed any way you like.”

Size:
The finished size of this sweater is 46” around, 23” long. To change sizes, change the number of stitches in each square.

Materials:
8 oz. rainbow-dyed yarn (40-50 yds/oz)

A minimum of 20 oz. of assorted colors that can be knit at 4.5 sts/inch. Each yarn should be 5 yards long or some multiple of 5 yards long. The more scraps the better since you’ll want lots to choose from.

Needles:
24” circular needles size 7 or whatever size will give you a gauge of 4.5 sts/inch. Straight needles the same size. 24” circular and DP needles two sizes smaller for cuffs and edges.
