This pattern is a new variation of the Knit House cardigan pattern

As I was teaching a class on this sweater, Knit House cardigan, I created my own modified version for my daughter (who is in her mid 20s!). I made a lot of changes so thought that I would provide another easy-to-follow pattern.

The original pattern is a more classic fit, while this one has a more modern feel:

  • Shorter cropped length
  • Shorter bottom ribbing
  • Longer & moderate balloon sleeves
  • Wider button band

I hope you can have fun with this updated design!

Errata - page 5 ‘Separate Body and Sleeve“ the first sleeve is left sleeve and the second sleeves is right sleeve. It doesn’t change anything what you do. Sorry!
