For Freddy, I knew that I needed a little different pattern. Something that would evoke manly Freddy, but also show off his signature colors to their best advantage. I decided to take a leap and try a simple open front cardigan with short sleeves. I chose yarn overs as my increases to give the shoulders a slightly open appearance and simple garter stitch edges to keep the lines clean and a little more masculine in appearance. Add an orange jabot to this cardigan and rock your inner Freddy in style.

When making the cardigan, you may need a 3rd skein for the 40 inch size.
