BIG COTTON VERSION

Pattern level: Intermediate

Sizes:  XS - 2X/3X

Materials:

  • Loopy Mango Big Cotton Yarn 48 yds 43 m | 100 g 3.5 oz each, 100% cotton
  • Size US 17 (12 mm) circular needles 32'' (80 cm) in length 
  • Size US 19 (15 mm) circular needles 32'' (80 cm) in length 

Note: for 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.

GaugeStockinette on size US 19: 7 sts/4", 9 rows/4". 1x1 rib on size US 17 9 sts/4’’, 10 rows/4’’. This cardigan is knit in the round so your gauge swatch for stockinette stitch should also be knit in the round - usually knitting stockinette stitch in the round results in tighter tension since there are no purl rows.
