ERRATA Jan 2016: The headings for Upper Right and Upper Left Front were transposed! After finishing the Lower Body, you’ll be working the Upper Left Front. An updated version is now available in your Ravelry library.
DARJEELING is a warm and cozy worsted weight cardigan with a fun colourwork pattern. The deep v-neck and long sleeves are flattering and comfortable. The colourwork bows take very little yarn - perfect for a single skein of something special, like handspun. Darjeeling is great over jeans and dresses alike.
The body of Darjeeling is knit flat in one piece from the hem up to the underarms, then split for the front and back. Sleeves are worked in the round to the underarm, then knit back and forth for the raglan shaping and sewn in.
Regular to oversized fit and meant to be worn with several inches of ease (2-4” / 5-10cm). Choose the finished size that is closest to your high bust measurement or one size up.
