The Erwarton Cardigan is part of the Easy Everyday Wearables ebook, a collection of garments and accessories that use simple shaping, basic stitches and easy techniques with tutorials to assist you to create beautiful wardrobe staples.

This shawl-collared slouchy cardigan is worked from side to side to make complicated shaping issues disappear and give a lovely stretchy fabric. It looks far more complicated than it is, with fake side seam rib panels, built in pockets and a shawl collar. It hooks up quickly in this aran weight yarn – you’ll be relaxing in it before you know it!

Designed to be worn with about 8cm/3in ease at the chest, choose a size that is larger than your chest measurement. As the cardigan is not designed to be closed, choosing a size that relates
to your full back measurement doubled may give more accurate sizing. Because of the modified set in sleeves the upperarm measurement is not crucial for fit as sleeves are very generous at the upperarm.

13st and 11 rows in htr in BLO to 10cm/4in using 7mm hook (or size needed to achieve tension).
The sleeves are essentially a large swatch so it’s worth working up to the decrease section on the first sleeve then washing and drying it to check if your tension is correct.
