Skill Level Master – combining multiple apprentice level skills into one garment.
Notes Knit in one piece from the bottom up, this fitted, feminine cardigan would look equally at place in the 1920s as it does today. Shaping is worked at sleeves to mimic the shape of set-in sleeves.

  • A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitch
  • When working I-cord, be careful not to pull the yarn too tightly. Gently tug the edging every few rows to ensure an even tension.
  • Cardigan uses between 2 [3, 3, 3, 4, 5] skeins of the linked yarn.

Measures 29 ¾ [33, 37, 41, 45, 49]“ at bust.
