This trendy long open-front cardigan is made from a wool/acrylic soft yarn. A relaxed, slightly oversized fit, it is finished with chunky ribbed edges. I’m really satisfied with the result. I combined a puff and popcorn stitches pattern with the trendy cardigan silhouette. I hope it turned out to be very interesting and stylish. This is a wardrobe workhorse that can be worn with virtually anything.

The pattern is not very difficult, and furthermore if you have already worked with popcorn stitches and puff stitches you fell it quite easy. The pattern is available for instant download and includes written instructions, abbreviation keys, and tips to help you successfully create this project. I’ve included 6 sizes to fit medium to three X.

I have written this pattern in standard US terms. The pattern is not for beginners, but even if you don’t have enough experience you can try it out anyway. Pictures are included every step of the way, making it great for those who are new to following patterns.
