32¼(34¼, 37¼, 40½, 43½, 46½) [49½, 52½, 55½, 58¾, 61¾]” / 80.5(85.5, 93.5, 101, 108.5, 116) [124, 131.5, 139, 146.5, 154.5] cm finished chest circumference.

Shown in size 37¼” with approx 1½” of positive ease.

A classic long line cardigan with a deep v-neck and cosy pockets. The back and front are worked separately from the bottom up, which gives structure and allows two layers to be worked on the fronts for the neatly constructed pockets. The wide, relaxed-fit shoulders use an extended version of English tailoring, with all of the shaping at the back. The style is somewhere between a set-in and dropped shoulder with very shallow sleeve caps. The sleeves are worked flat from the top down from stitches picked up around the armhole. The two layers of the front pockets are joined by seaming them to the back and separately worked button band as one.

Can be worked on straight or circular needles.

May 2020
An updated version of Wardie is now available. This update includes directions for a new open front variation with a wider band worked sideways in 2x2 rib. We’ve also updated the directions for joining the front pockets to be clearer and easier to follow. In case you missed it we have a series of tutorials for Wardie (and it’s sibling worsted weight pattern Granton) on our blog.
