This is the plus sized version of the popular Delancey Cardigan by Alexis Winslow.

The plus size version features a more generous fit through the arms, and a slightly wider front band and collar. The plus-size version of this pattern is offered separately because the pattern instructions have been significantly altered to fit the different needs of plus-size proportions.

The Delancey Cardigan has a vintage feel with its striking chevron stripe motif and elegant shawl collar. Sections of thin diagonal stripes accentuate the sweater’s unusual zig-zag construction. Slanting stripes, in combination with the long sleek fit, make this a flattering design for any figure.

The body is knitted back and forth in one large piece on circular needles then divided to form the armholes. There is a seam at the top of each shoulder. Stitches for the set-in sleeves are picked up around the armhole and knitted from the top down. Stitches for the collar are also picked up along the edge, and short rows form the shawl collar.
