My Chunky Cardigan


My chunky Cardigan is a light and airy kimono-like cardigan. It is absolutely perfect for those chilly summer nights or to spice up your everyday outfit. It is worked top-down, with increases on the shoulders. It is started on the collars, from where the stitches are picked up. The entire cardigan is worked in the flat, back and forth, on 7 mm needles. Except for the sleeves, which is worked in the round.

I highly recommend to try on the cardigan and adjust the length if necessary.

The cardigan has a positive ease of approximately 15-20 cm. Therefore measure your bust circumference to find the right size.
