Product Details

The Barley Twist cardigan is my take on a traditional raglan children's cardigan. Sometimes I want to knit something simple, but with little details that maintain my interest as a knitter: the Barley Twist cardigan ticks those boxes. The raglan lines feature cabled details, and the A-line shape stops the body being endless stocking stitch! The cardigan is named for the cables along the raglan lines.

The yoke of the cardigan is knitted back and forth in reverse stocking stitch with a cable detail along the raglan lines, then the sleeve stitches are held and the body knitted back and forth. The body includes increases to create a gentle A-line shape, and the buttonholes and button-bands are knitted at the same time as the body and yoke. Once the body is complete, the sleeve stitches are returned to the needles, and the sleeves are knitted in the round. Instructions are given for both long and short-sleeved options.

Yarn quantities given below are for long sleeve version.
