“Courie in” is a Scottish phrase meaning to “snuggle up” - and it’s the perfect name for this oversized, supremely warm, wrap front cardigan. This is a real winter warmer, ideal for nestling into with a mug of cocoa on a cold day. And it’s so quick to knit! This cardigan has a slightly unusual construction. Sleeves are knitted first from cuff to centre back, then both sleeves are joined with a three needle bind off. Stitches are picked up at the bottom edge from armpit to armpit and worked down to the hem to form the back. Then stitches are picked up round the front to form the garter stitch wrap front. In this new version of the pattern we include instructions for nine sizes to fit busts from 26” to 60” and variations for three-quarter sleeves and a shorter body.
