Simple Cardigan #168
Digital items are not included in shipping calculations (see our delivery page for more info). Digital Patterns are available immediately after purchase.
This gorgeous cardigan rates an experienced level because of the use of short row shaping in the collar and sleeve caps. If you’re comfortable with short rows, you’ll find this pattern a cinch. If you’ve not worked short rows before, give it a try; you’ll find it’s not hard at all, and the cardigan is well worth the effort!
This cardigan is worked in one piece from the bottom to the armholes, then the fronts and back are worked separately to the shoulders; the ribbed front bands/collar are worked at the same time as the fronts, and the collar is shaped using short rows. Once each front is completed, the collar is worked to half the width of the center back neck. The collar halves are joined using 3-Needle Bind-Off, then sewn to the back neck. The sleeves are picked up from the armholes and worked to the cuffs, with short-row shaping to shape the sleeve caps.
