Cozy up by the hearth and break out your needles for Chimney Fire, a lush cardigan sweater pattern. Named for a cocktail made of amaretto, cinnamon, and hot apple cider, Chimney Fire features moss stitch, cables, and ribbing that will chase off the chill of cool winter nights. Even though it features top-down constructions, this Chimney Fire will have you saying “bottoms up!”
This sweater is meant to fit across the back and have open front panels. The back measurements for this garment, shown above, are from mid-underarm to mid-underarm (where side seams would be) across the back of the finished sweater. This number is not, necessarily, half the bust measurement. The purple is an XS (15.75) shown on a 32” bust and the red is a small (17) shown on a 35” bust.
Approximate yardage needed for the sweater is 1060 [1140, 1250, 1340, 1465, 1620, 1750] yds/ 969 [1042, 1143, 1225, 1340, 1481, 1600] m. This is 7 [7, 8, 8, 9, 10, 11] skeins of Zen Yarn Garden Serenity Worsted.
