Cassis is a cozy cardigan that’s easy to customize as you like. The reversible collar can be folded back or draped inward and looks great either way. The casual shape can be pinned closed or worn open, and the length is easy to adjust. Simple lace on the front and back makes a flattering line and adds a little interest.

Sweater is knit from the top down with minimal shaping and no seaming.

Pattern contains instructions for both Worsted and Aran weight yarn, short or long sleeves, and options for hip or long length.


Gauge for Worsted weight = 5 sts x 7 rows/rnds per 1”
Gauge for Aran weight = 4 sts x 6 rows/rnds per 1”

Gauge based on finished, stockinette fabric.


Based on finished width of sweater around bust:

Worsted Weight Version:
39(40.5,43.75,46.25,47.75)(51,52.25,55.75,57.5, 59.75)“/ 99(103,111, 117.5,121.5) (129.5,132.75, 141.5,146,151.75)cm

Aran Weight Version:
37.75(39.75,42.75,45.75,47.75)(51.75,52.75,55.75, 56.75,57.75)“/ 96(101,108.5, 116.25,121.25)(131.5, 134,141.5,144.25,146.5)cm

I suggest choosing the size that allows for 7-10”/ 17.75-25.5cm 6-8”/15.25-20.25cm of positive ease, based on your actual bust.
