Have you wanted to knit a sweater that fits your body? Have you wondered why waist shaping has bulging bits that don’t fit your curves? What about knitting a sweater to fit your shoulders and back as well as your bust? All these concerns are addressed in the brand new design by Corinne, aptly called the Victory Cardigan.

Corinne designed the perfect cardigan (by knitting the prototype 3 times!) and the results speak for themselves! The Victory Cardi is a comfortable, well fitting cardigan that is a pleasure to wear and fits like a glove.

This top down raglan sweater includes a steek. It is very size inclusive and includes instructions for seventeen sizes, 31”- 68” at the upper bust, intended to have 1 - 2” of positive ease. For this pattern we recommend that knitters use their upper bust measurement, measured at your underarms when selecting a size in order to get the best fit. The full list of measurement in the pattern are given below for you to reference when choosing your kit size.
