Come and join the KAL running in the Mairlynd group (we got yarn prizes!)

If you purchase 5 patterns from my Ravelry Store at the same time (add them all to your cart before you check out), the least expensive one will be free.

A treat for your wild and wonderful side, this slouchy, grandpa-fit cardigan is the perfect project to knit in those stray moments you steal away for yourself.

The sample is made in Alpaca Heather from Manos del Uruguay, a lovely yarn with plenty of character that comes in a rainbow of beautiful shades. Or, bring this sweater to life using leftover skeins you’ve been saving from past projects.

Desperate Housewife is a top-down, one-piece cardigan with a circular yoke, ideal for lounging or throwing on for a splash of color when you run errands.

Measurements given are for the finished garment. Designed to fit with 4 - 8” / 10 - 20 cm of positive ease at the bust, less for larger sizes. Photos show size 2 on a 36” / 91.5 cm bust model.
