Sunday Cardigan, Petite Knit. Knitting Pattern

SKU: R-T0124


This is a printed knitting pattern 

The Sunday Cardigan is knit from the top down with one strand of 10ply/Worsted weight yarn and two strands of silk mohair held together throughout the work. The yoke is knit back and forth in rib and shaped with increases. The button bands are knit simultaneously with the rest of the cardigan, so you do not have to pick up stitches at the end. The body and sleeves are knit in stockinette stitch and are finished with a wide rib edge. The sleeves are extra-long. The neckband is folded in and sewn to the wrong side.

The button holes are constructed at the end by widening up a hole in the knit fabric (and are thus not worked as you knit the button band); they are secured and shaped by sewing along the edges of the button holes with buttonhole stitches (sewing).

The cardigan is designed to have approximately 8-12cm of ease (the finished garment to be 8-12cm larger than your bust circumference).  

A great match for Malabrigo Rios or Sesia Merino Alpaca Aran yarn.  and Rowan Kidsilk Haze or Prosper Mint
