Gloam is a boxy, versatile cardigan featuring easy knit and purl texture. Knit in pieces, this cardi is a fun and relaxing knit. Easily customize yours by adjusting the length, working stripes or a fade, or color-blocking!

I used the beautiful Spincycle Metamorphic, a really special DK weight yarn created with recycled wool! Check it out here! I always love working with Spincycle for their craftsmanship, innovative yarn, and friendship. Thank you, Kate, Rachel and team! <3

If you wish to substitute another yarn there are many wonderful choices, including Pishkun from The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers, Lady Dye Yarn’s DK, Essence of Autumn’s Pasture, or Ritual Dye’s Elder. Of course there are so many more- I recommend checking testers’ project pages to see some other options! You can also join my Ravelry Group for all the yarn and pattern chat you can handle!

Please note that the texture pattern is charted only. It is quite simple, and a great chart for beginners to follow!

This sweater is knit flat from the top down in pieces and seamed at the shoulders and sides. The sleeves are then picked up and worked in the round. Finally the front band is picked up and worked. Circular needles are recommended to accommodate the large stitch count and are needed for the sleeves.

Gloam is an oversized, open-front cardigan designed to be worn with 15-20” 38-51 cm of positive ease at the bust, including the front bands. The sleeve circumference is designed to fit with 8-12” 20.5-30.5 cm of positive ease.
