As always, this Oat Couture pattern includes cable charts, and diagrams of the sweater pieces. This is a simple drop-shoulder cardigan sweater with minimal shaping, making it perfect for a knitter who wants to either knit their first Aran sweater, or would like to knit a simple, easy Aran that doesn’t require immense amounts of concentration.
This is fun to make, each piece on the bias (2 front pieces, 2 back pieces) but you have to pay attention to get the shaping right. It looks great with hand dyed yarn, the little lines of color really emphasize the bias. The ribbing trim is nice too, with a twist cable.
Can also use sport weight yarn: 1890-2725 yards; knitting needles sizes US 4 & 5; gauge of 23 sts and 28 rows in 4 inches. Recommends 36” circular needles for larger sizes in both yarn weights. Other supplies recommended/required: 8 ring markers; 4 stitch holders; 7 buttons.
