The Bombon Cardigan is an oversized
semi-cropped cardigan with an air
bobble detail, which accentuates de
upper body while being incredibly
confortable to wear. The boxy shape and
the air bobble pattern make the drape of
the cardigan flow and be the perfect
companion for high-waisted jeans or a
form-fitting dress.

The Bombon Cardigan is worked in 5
separate pieces: the back, right and left
front and two sleeves. Once they are
knitted, they must be seamed together.
Even though all pieces are worked flat, if
possible, work with 32” (80 cm) or 40”
(100 cm) circular needles to
acommodate the weight of the back

Finished measurements:
49 54” (124.5 137 cm) bust
19 20 1⁄4” (48 51.5 cm) length.

1.on the BACK: on rows 91 and 97, the count of sts before the bobble pattern for the size S/M is missing.
It should be:
Row 91: k27 (32)…
Row 97: k25 (30)…
2.on the RIGHT FRONT: row 31 starts “k1, p2, k4…”. It should be “k1, k1, k4…”.
3.on the SLEEVES: on row 17 it finishes with “…k until there are 3 sts left…”. It should be “k until there are 2 sts left”.**
