Notefor sleeves you will need to use magic loop method when using size US 19 (15 mm) circular needles 32’’ (80 cm).  To avoid magic loop for sleeves you can use an additional size US 19 (15 mm) 20’’ (50 cm) circulars OR US 19 (15 mm) DPN’s.  

For the cuffs you will need to use magic loop method when using size US 17 (12 mm) circular needles 32’’ (80 cm).  To avoid magic loop for cuffs you will need to use an additional set of size US 17 (12 mm) DPN’s.

This cardigan is worked flat from the neck to the armholes, then stitches are placed on hold for the sleeves while the body is worked flat to the bottom edge. When the body is complete, the sleeves are worked in the round to the cuff.  Length measurements of the body are given from shoulder to hem.

Buttons can be added to this style to make it your signature piece.

Care: Hand wash or machine wash cold, tumble dry. Please test any washing/drying method on a small swatch to ensure you like the end result. As our cotton is chunky, un-mercerized, and minimally processed to preserve the fiber’s natural softness and elasticity, it is more prone to shedding. Washing and drying should help alleviate this. For further information and tips, please consult our Fiber Care Guide

Yarn made in Italy, kit assembled in the USA.

Shown in Avocado (M), Ginger (S), and Amethyst (M).
