From the Designer’s Notebook…
I really wanted something quick and easy that I could make as a last-minute Christmas gift for my sister. So I designed this for her on the fly and liked it so much that I decided to share the design in my collection.

Knit in the traditional top-down raglan way, with bulky-weight yarn, this cardigan definitely lives up to its name. The garter and stockinette stitch sections offset one another and create a nice contrast of knitted textures. The cap sleeves are simple, and the button holes can be placed wherever you want them. A garter hem finishes the look. All of it makes for a quick knit.

GAUGE NOTES
It isn’t exact because of the thick and thin yarn I used, but it’s close.

SIZING NOTES
Bust: 32 (36, 40, 44)“ - S (M, L, XL)
Approximate Yarn Requirements: 4 (4, 5, 7) skeins of Knit Picks Billow

{ I say approximate because the sizing (bust, length) is fully customizable depending on every knitter’s preference regarding fit. }
