„Positive Thoughts” combines the looks of a traditional grandfather cardigan with today’s advanced methods of seamless knitting for a classical garment with modern fit, minus the hassle and discomfort of the bulky seams normally associated with heavier yarn weights!

This cardigan is worked top down with set-in sleeves, starting at the back, followed by both fronts and parts joined after the armholes, with button bands featuring a one-row buttonhole.

The cable pattern reminiscent of wheat sheaves is fully charted for individual sizes. With a small amount of positive ease already incorporated in the pattern, it’s comfy and literally predestined to become your next favorite Christmas sweater, especially when worked in Green!
