Enjoy making yourself a very girly cardigan… It is romantic, beautiful, full of little details that make it interesting…
Grown up girl is the adult’s version of Girly, with a lot of mods that make it more flattering for a woman’s shape.
Carefully placed pockets with little flowers and leaves, take all the attention in the front. In the back, you can show off your knitting super-powers with a bigger floral motif and pleats.
The cardigan includes directions to add ties, though you can leave it without them.
It is knit in one piece up to the armholes and then dividing for front and back, with set in sleeves worked from the top down. It comes in sizes 30 to 56.

The girl’s version of this pattern is available now through ravelry too! Girly

Malabrigo Rios (100 g – 210 yd) – 5 (6, 6, 7, 7, 8, 8) skeins, or any worsted weight yarn that knits up to the correct gauge.

US 7 (4.5 mm) circular needles for the body, at least 36 inches/90 cm long.

Other Notions:

  • Stitch markers: You will need 8. I advise you to have 2 of them different from the rest to serve as “SIDE” markers. These 2 markers will separate the back from the fronts. The rest of the markers will help you place the Leaves Patterns correctly.
  • Stitch holders
  • Tapestry needle
