Sizes given are finished dimensions. You’ll need 8 (8, 9, 9, 9, 10, 11, 11, 12, 13, 13, 14) hanks of the recommended yarn, shown in “Metro Silver”, to knit the different sizes.

Sometimes you just need your sweater to be snuggly, cozy around your neck, and have thumbholes. For those times, this cardigan has you covered. It features extra-long sleeves that can be worn as shown or cuffed, a cowl neck that can be worn as shown or unbuttoned into a generous collar, and waist shaping located on the back only for a forgiving fit.

The lofty, light-as-air yarn is strong thanks to a tube construction, and ever-so-soft thanks to superfine alpaca. It will keep you warm, and invite hugs, wherever you go.
