The Cambridge Cardigan is the quintessential collegiate cardigan. Inspired by Scottish tartans, this preppy, oversized cardigan is ready for a chilly library, reading on the quad, or a beer at the local pub. The body of this project is worked in the round and steeked at the center and armholes.

Finished Size: 34¼ (37¾ , 40¼ , 43¾ , 49¾ , 52¼ )“ bust circumference. Cardigan shown
measures 43¾ “; modeled with 11¾ “ of positive ease.

Yarn: Jamieson’s Shetland Spindrift (100% Shetland wool; 115 yd 105 m/⅞ oz 25 g):
#243 storm (gray-green; MC), 9 (10, 11, 12, 13, 14) skeins;
#122 granite (light gray; CC1), 4 (5, 5, 5, 6, 7) skeins;
#576 cinnamon (pink; CC2), 2 (2, 2, 2, 3, 3) skeins.
Yarn distributed by Simply Shetland.

Needles: Size 2½ (3 mm): 16”, 32”, and 40” circular (cir) and set of double-pointed
(dpn). Size 3 (3.25 mm): 32” cir and set of dpn. Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain
the correct gauge.

Notions: Markers (m); tapestry needle; nine ⅝ “ buttons.

Gauge: 24 sts and 33 rnds = 4” in St st on larger needle; 24 sts and 33 rnds = 4” in
charted patt on larger needle.

Duplicate stitch or Crochet slip stitch note:
I only worked duplicate stitch on the center two boxes on the back and five boxes closest to the opening on each front while the original plan was to do it all over hence the pattern text specifies all. So you knit the center stitch of the pattern repeat with the MC and then either use duplicate stitch or slip stitch/crochet with CC2 above it.
