Seamless and with the cutest sunburst detail of eyelet stitches, the Easy Eyelet Yoke cardigan is the perfect project for a knitter wanting to dive into their first seamless top-down yoke cardi. Made with roughly 5-7”/13-18cm of positive ease in mind, this cardigan was designed for everyday wear. Simple and elegant, it can be dressed down with some ripped jeans and short booties, or dressed up to wear to work. The eyelet increase stitches truly remind me of strands of pearls, classy and simple.

Knit top down, flat, and seamless, this pattern is written in 9 sizes – XS (S, M, L, XL) (2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL). It is suggested that you highlight your size, so you know which stitch count to follow. Model pictured is wearing the size M and is 5’7”, 145 pounds and has a bust of 36.5” in circumference, for reference.

How to choose your size: Find your bust measurements below. The positive ease is built into the pattern, meaning the final measurements will be 5-7” bigger than that number.

Knit flat, and in the round, seamless.

XS – 28-30” bust
S – 32-34” bust
M – 36-38” bust
L – 40-42” bust
XL – 44-46” bust
2XL – 48-50” bust
3XL – 52-54” bust
4XL – 56-58” bust
5XL – 60-62” bust

Pattern has been tested in all sizes except for 5X. If you would like to test that size and have a bust of 60-62”, please send me an email at knitatude@gmail.com.
