This cozy cardigan knits up in no time, in just about the squishiest yarn imaginable. Knit from the top down in one piece, there are no seams so all you have to do at the end is weave in the ends and attach the buttons. Each winter I crave knitting a bigger project after all the Christmas knitting and this fits the bill, one big beautiful thing that will keep me warm on the darkest nights, and is a great chance to play with colour in the midst of winter’s grey and white. Plus, since it’s knit out of bulky wool you’ll have the satisfaction of a finished object without having to wait too long for it.

The pattern includes the instructions and one page size-specific appendix for each size, you only need to print the appendix for your size.
