This is the cardigan version of the Lili’s Bobble Sweater. Knit with the super soft Hip Wool and luxurious Hip Mohair, this is a fast and satisfying project. This cardigan features puffy sleeves, a cropped body, and a fun circular bobbled yoke.

The body is knit flat and bottom up, in Stockinet Stitch and a 2 x 2 ribbed hem. Sleeves are worked in the round, bottom up, and then joined with the body at the yoke. Short rows are incorporated in the back for a better neckline fit. Decreases are made after the bobbles round so bobbles are secure. If you’ve never knit bobbles before, there’s a link with a helpful video under the bobbles section. Stitches are picked-up along both cardigan’s side edges for a 2 x 2 ribbed finishing. This cardigan has no buttonholes or buttons.

Measurements:
Sleeve length: 38 (39, 41, 43, 45, 47, 48, 48, 48) cm.
Body length: 23 (24, 25, 27, 29, 31, 33, 34, 35) cm.
Chest circumference: 89 (96, 103, 110, 117, 124, 131, 138) cm.

Please note these measurements were taken after blocking. This sweater was designed to fit slightly looser, with 9 cm of positive ease. Please take these details into consideration before choosing the right size for you.

Yardage:
Please not that the use of mohair or lace weigh yarn is optional, but highly recommended. It makes a much beautiful and softer fabric.

S 858 yds / 784 m
