Revive Cardigan

Knitting
September 2016
DK (11 wpi) ?
22 stitches and 32 rows = 4 inches
in stockinette
US 6 - 4.0 mm
1015 - 2030 yards (928 - 1856 m)
36 1/2 (38 1/4, 40 1/4, 41 1/2, 43 1/2, 45 3/4, 47 1/4, 48 1/2, 50 1/2, 52 3/4, 56, 60 1/4)" / 92.5 (97, 102, 105.5, 110.5, 116, 120, 123, 128.5, 134, 142, 153) cm bust

Sizes given are finished dimensions. You’ll need 7 (8, 8, 9, 9, 10, 11, 11, 12, 13, 13, 14) hanks of the recommended yarn for the different sizes; shown in color “Moraine”.

This cardigan is exceptionally comfortable, and I think it represents the best of what drop-shoulder sweaters can be: The fit exactly like what I was knitting 20 years ago, but the materials and some slight waist shaping on the back turn it into a much more pleasurable garment to knit and wear.

I chose an alpaca-silk-wool blend for this garment, with muted, neutral colors and a slightly nubby texture. The fit should be generous, but not exaggerated - I recommend choosing a size with around 4” (10 cm) of ease.
