No Frills Cardigan is an oversized cardigan that is worked top-down and shaped with raglan increases. It follows a seamless construction and requires very little finishing. The neck band is worked in rib st and it continues vertically into the front bands of the cardigan. Lastly, set-in pockets are worked on the front. It is worked holding the two suggested yarns together for extra warmth and color mixing. Its simple design makes it a really wearable, timeless piece.

No Frills Cardigan is worked with 20-25 cm positive ease. Size XS (S) M (L) XL corresponds to a chest circumference of about 85 (90) 95 (100) 110 cm. Take your measurements before you start knitting to decide which size is the right for one for you.
