Through Thick and Thin
This Bottom-up, Contiguous cardigan is a delight to wear. The easy construction, a variation on Suzie M.’s contiguous method, is quickly knit up. The variation between thick and thin yarn gives a delightfully stretchy, airy texture.
Length for body and sleeves can be adjusted to your own preference. This is a versatile cardigan that can be customized in many ways and knit up in many yarn variations and thicknesses.
Knit one up with short or elbow length sleeves, just in time for the next warm evening….
