Oh a classic cabled cardigan! It never goes out of style and it can be worn with nearly everything! I set out to add one that was fun to knit to my wardrobe and this is how the Porter Cardigan came about. It is a classic sturdy cabled cardigan that I’ll pull out year after year and will never go out of style.

Body is knit from the body up, flat. Sleeves are knit from the bottom up in the round and joined to the body at the underarms. Raglan decreases are made through the yoke, with a slight tweak so that the cable of the arm travels all the way up the shoulder. Buttonbands are picked up for the front. Though the sample does not use a smaller needle size for the ribbing, some knitters prefer to work ribbing on a tighter needle.

Finished chest measurement: 31¼ (35, 39¼, 42½, 46, 50, 54¾) inches – designed to be worn with approximately 0-4 inches of positive ease.
