This cardigan was designed to be drapey and loose through the gauge and yarn combination. It is meant to be worn with +2” / +5 cm of wearing ease. The bust size is adjustable; there are no front closure elements, so it can be wrapped tighter and secured with a shawl pin or edging can be knit wider or narrower. Please be sure to measure the intended wearer before choosing a size.

The garment begins with two mitered quadrilaterals that resemble kites or diamonds. The tops of these two conjoined β€œkites” are used as the basis for the back piece. The back and front panels are knit independently and seamed together at the sides.

Tip: If short rows are shredding your yarn, try hanging a cast-on rag in front of each wrapped stitch to protect the fabric you are knitting.
