The Aline Modular Cardigan is adapted from our famous Amazing Modular Baby Cardigan but includes a different modular approach and the option of featured/visible joins or hidden joins. There are short row side gores to give the Aline shaping and you can make them narrower for a leaner fit or leave them out altogether if you prefer a boxy fit.

Uses self striping or plain, Aran/Worsted weight yarn 16sts 30rows to 4in/10cm square in garter st. I’ve made this and the baby version in dk, worsted and aran and all worked really well, the only difference is drape, dk is softer and lighter than aran so the cardigan will be more flowing.

Sized 34-62 inch chest, finished measurements. Recommend Ease is 0-4 inches for most body shapes. I’m bottom heavy and would wear a smaller size than usual as my shoulders are narrow. If you’re not sure, drop me a pm on Rav and I’ll be happy to help.

With immense gratitude to my awesome testers:
