Carbeth Cardigan Knit Pattern

Carbeth Cardigan Knit Pattern

Regular price $10.00 USD
Regular price Sale price $10.00 USD
Tax included. Shipping calculated at checkout.

A cropped cardigan with simple lines and a structured ribbed collar.

The cardigan is knitted from the bottom up, and begins with an inch of rib, after which it is worked straight to the underarms (length can be added here to make the cardigan less cropped, if required). 

Two sleeves are worked, then body and sleeves are joined together to be worked in one piece. 

The yoke is shaped by decreasing stitches at an even rate from the body only, and, when the correct depth is reached, the stitch count is reduced further for the neck. 

Button bands are worked, then the neck rib is picked up, folded over and joined to the inside of the garment. 

Finally, an i-cord bind off and i-cord buttonholes add a neat finish to the front edges. 

Where one number is given this applies to all sizes.
