Product details

Working in my shop in the main street it was quite cold in the mornings but warmed up in the afternoon.

This gave me the idea of knitting a cardigan with detachable sleeves so I didn’t have to go out the back to change into something lighter.  I removed the sleeves whilst in the shop leaving me in a vest over my blouse.

I found this worked very well so here is the option for you.

This cardigan can be knitted from many odd balls you have in your stash – BUT they must all have the same tension.  Maybe only buy a few balls for the main colour in the bands and the odd square.

Use a different colour for each square in sequence or at random.

Sizing – The main squares of 15 stitches are 3”/7.5cm so times 12 = 36”/91cm bust.

A thicker yarn will equal a larger jacket – knit one 15 stitch square then multiply by the 12 squares for the bust measurement.
