The Positano Pocket Cardigan is created with the beautifully textured spider stitch which provides for a solid fabric, with minimal holes between stitches. The larger hook size gives it the needed drape.

This cardigan has a classic fit that is comfortable with some room, 5” of positive ease. The front panels overlap and can be secured by adding buttons, using a shawl pin or worn open.

The scoop neck is designed to allow for pairing with your favorite cowl, scarf or turtle neck. The length falls just past the bottom, but is easily adjustable by adding/subtracting rows to all panels before beginning the scoop neck decreases or adding more hem rows.

My favorite part of this cardigan are the pockets! They are seamed into the sides and are perfectly placed to keep your hands warm. Pockets are optional and can easily be left off.

The sleeves are worked from the wrist up so they are easy to try on as you go and make any adjustments, should you prefer a slimmer or roomier sleeve.

This pattern is written for sizes S (M, L, XL, 2X). Target Measurements for each piece are included which make adjusting for your tastes or size easier. Stitch multiple is also included.

The video tutorials are for the stitch used and several for the techniques used on the sleeves. Positano Pocket Cardigan Video Playlist The videos are for the purposes of illustrating how the technique is done. All measurements, stitch counts, etc. are in the written pattern.

Gauge swatch instructions are included. Please do a gauge swatch to check your tension. It is easy to adjust your hook size before beginning. This also allows you to get familiar with the spider stitch.
