Oda’s Cardigan (English version)


Oda’s cardigan is a timeless and feminine pullover in ribbing. It is oversized with a tight ribbing at the bottom of the body and in the wrists, which creates a balloon effect.

Oda’s cardigan is worked top-down with shoulder increases. While the increases are made, the neckline is formed with German short rows. The neck, the lower rib at the body and the rib at the wrists are knitted wíth 4,5 mm needles and the rest of the pullover is knitted on 5,5 mm needles. For the cardigan, the method tubular bind off os used to ensure a nice finish along with increasing the functionality.

Make sure the tension is correct. Make sure to knit a swatch before you start. The gauge is stated after washing. While knitting the gauge be approximately 22-26 stitches.

There is a positive ease with approximately 15-20 cm around the bust. Therefore, measure your bust circumference to find the right size.

I recommend to try the pullover along the way and adjust the length to make sure it fits perfectly.
