Whether you are looking for a cozy sweater to wear while you warm yourself by the fire, or it’s some mindless TV-knitting you’re after, the Fireside Cardigan fits the bill nicely.

You can work this round-yoke knitting pattern from the top-down, and finish it without ever sewing a stitch. The cover sample features short sleeves for those chilly days between seasons. Instructions are also included for a more traditional long-sleeved version. The body and the sleeves are meant to be a close fit, with negative to no ease in the chest area.

Required Skills
The project is geared towards intermediate knitters and motivated beginners. If you have these skills:

  • Long-tail and backwards loop cast-ons
  • Knit and Purl
  • Increasing and decreasing
  • Picking up stitches
  • Basic bind-off

then you can do this.
