This flattering double breasted cardigan features a turned hem on both the body and sleeves and a twisted rib panel and collar. The body and sleeves are knitted from the bottom up and joined at the underarms to work a traditional raglan yoke. Twisted ribbing travels up the front of the sweater and six buttons make the closure. A fold-over collar (worked seamlessly from the body) gives a sweet and cozy finish to the sweater. Three-quarter length sleeves make this a fall appropriate sweater, but could easily be lengthened for colder weather.
The pattern is offered in nine sizes, ranging from a finished bust measurement of 32 to 64 inches. The sweater was designed to be worn with 2” of positive ease at the bust. Jacqueline calls for a worsted or aran weight yarn. Sample is shown in Lorna’s Laces Worsted Solid in Pine. The required gauge is 18 sts/24 rows per 4” in Stockinette stitch and 24 sts/24 rows per 4” in twisted 1x1 rib.
Techniques used in the pattern include a provisional cast on, a turned hem, twisted ribbing and casting on during a row.
