Edinburgh is the ultimate cozy and stylish cardigan. It features an all-over cable and rib pattern and a shawl collar that’ll look great with any outfit. It also has pockets for stuffing your phone or your hands if it’s chilly.
The cardigan is knit in pieces and seamed together to provide structure to this fabric. Once the seaming is done, the button band and shawl collar are worked to finish off the piece.

Sizes
XS (S, M, L, XL, 2XL) Finished chest circumference of 34.75 (39, 43.5, 49.25, 52.25, 55)”/87 (97.5, 108.5, 123, 130.5, 137.5) cm, designed to be worn with approximately 3—4”/7.5—10 cm of positive ease.

Materials
Suggested Yarn

MC: SweetGeorgia Yarns Superwash Worsted; 100% Merino wool; 200 yds 183 m/4.06 oz 115 g; 1335 (1515, 1730, 1945, 2135, 2350) yds/1220 (1385, 1580, 1780, 1950, 2150) m in Silver.

CC (Optional): SweetGeorgia Yarns Superwash Sport; 100% Merino wool; 328 yds 300 m/4.06 oz 115 g; 1 skein in Hush.

Note: A sport weight CC has been chosen for this project specifically to create less bulk for the pockets. To create the contrast edging, a double strand of the CC is used to mimic the worsted weight of the MC. If you are omitting the pockets then you can also either omit the contrast edging, or simply use a single strand of another worsted weight yarn. I don’t recommend substituting a thicker yarn for the pockets, but if you do then be sure to alter your stitch counts for the pockets accordingly.

Needles
Needle A (for body and sleeves): US #6/4 mm (or size needed to obtain gauge) long circular and DPNs or your favourite style of needle for small circumference knitting.
Needle B (for edgings): US#5/3.75 mm (or one size smaller than that needed to obtain gauge) long circular.
Needle C (for pockets): US#4/3.5 mm (or two sizes smaller than that needed to obtain gauge) DPNs or your favourite style of needle for small circumference knitting.

Notions
Locking stitch markers, tapestry needle, cable needle, scrap yarn, five (or desired number) 1.25”/32 mm buttons.

Gauge
22 sts and 27 rows = 4”/10 cm in cable stitch pattern with Needle A, blocked.
Note: The pattern is written so the lower body length can be adjusted as desired, but the upper body is worked over a specific number of rows. If your row gauge is different than that stated, please refer to the schematic and adjust neck shaping and length and armhole length accordingly.
