Where’s Goose at? This cardigan design is an oversized, cropped “Bomber jacket” that hits right at the natural waistline. It’s been designed with roughly 6-8 inches of positive ease and with flowy bishop sleeves. So get out your aviators and rock this cardi with some ripped jeans, sneaks and a top knot. You’ll be the coolest cat in town.

Note: This pattern uses circular needles but is knit flat to accommodate the amount of stitches. It is written for sizes S (M, L, XL, 2XL, 3XL) so be sure to follow the correct size throughout.

Knit flat, sleeves knit in the round, seamless.

This pattern has been tested in all sizes.

How to choose your size: Find your bust measurements below. Positive ease is built into the pattern, meaning final measurements are 6-8” on top of that number.

S – 32-34” bust
M – 36-38” bust
L – 40-42” bust
XL – 44-46” bust
2XL – 48-50” bust
