The knitting pattern for my gardening cardigan is finally available for download! This cosy cardigan helps to show off your curves with cables that integrate the shaping. It is worked in one piece featuring set-in short row sleeves that are knit in the round. A little positive ease (2.5cm/1“) brings out the cables and braids without being restraining. To make sure the fit is great this cardigan is sized in 5cm/2“ steps. The cables and braids are charted. There are also instructions for optional bust darts included.
Suitable for intermediate to advanced knitters.
