’A Cardigan’ is as simple as that - an easy top-down cardigan with a bit of boxy, cropped length, and longer sleeves to make it oh-so versatile and wearable.

Woolfolk ‘Tage’ was used to knit this sample. It’s a light and beautiful yarn.
For a M size, you need only 250g!! (5 skeins)

The neckline of this cardigan starts with short-rows shaping, which adds a bit more coverage around shoulder, making it more comfortable to wear. The top-down nature of the pattern makes customizing the length of body and sleeves very easy. The yardage is for ‘cropped length’, so if you are thinking about making it longer, please add more yardage accordingly.

YARN
Any yarn that allows to get the correct gauge.
Yardage: S (M, L, XL) - 600 (700, 850, 970) yards

Note; Woolfolk ‘Tage’ ‘s suggested gauge is 16 - 20 sts. But I found out that this yarn feels wonderful and keeps the shape with 14 sts / 4”.

NEEDLES
You need ‘main size needles’ and ‘smaller size needles’.
Suggested main size needle size - US 10~10.5
Please take time to check the gauge.
