April Cardigan

Regular price 45,00 DKK

This pattern is in English.

The April Cardigan has a V-neckline and is worked from the top down. The first part of the yoke is worked with shoulder increases on both RS and WS rows. The next part is worked with sleeve increases and the final part with classic raglan increases. At the same time, increases are worked along the front edges to shape the V-neckline. The sleeves are worked in the round on double-pointed needles or on a circular needle using the Magic Loop technique. At the end, stitches are picked up and knitted along the fronts, shoulders and back of neck, and a ribbed front edge with buttonholes is worked. Begin by working a swatch to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge. 

Size guide

The April Cardigan is designed to have approx. 6-8 cm [2¼-3¼ inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 6-8 cm [2¼-3¼ inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 (130-140) 140-150 cm [31½-33½ (33½-35½) 35½-37½ (37½-39½) 39½-43¼ (43¼-47¼) 47¼-51¼ (51¼-55) 55-59 inches]. The measurements for the finished garment are on the front page of the pattern (note that these measurements are only achieved if the design is knitted in the correct gauge). Before beginning your project, measure yourself with a measuring tape around your bust or your widest upper body part to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35½ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size S. A size S sweater has a bust circumference of 97 cm [38¼ inches] which in the given example would give you 7 cm [2¾ inches] of positive ease.
