Balloon Sleeve Cardigan, Ruke Knit. Print Knitting Pattern



This is a beautifully printed knitting pattern.

The Balloon sleeve cardigan features long balloon-shaped sleeves. This knitting pattern is worked flat without shoulder seams - it means that the back and front are knitted in one big piece. Cardigan front band and sleeves are worked after finishing the whole cardigan body part. The front band has 5 snap fasteners.

The collar, cuffs, and hem have ties to cinch in. 

Designed to be knit with three strands held together - two 4ply/fingering, plus one 10ply brushed Alpaca/silk yarn to create a 10ply/worsted weight.  (you could substitute the brushed alpaca with a 2ply silk/mohair - as always we recommend swatching to determine gauge)
