I’m a coziness lover, forever drawn to any sweater that provides the singular comfort of a blanket or bathrobe, in a style fit for everyday wear. When our first sample of the Ivon Cardigan arrived at BT late last summer, I tried it on and immediately experienced that stealthy robe-ness that I crave, particularly when Fall and Winter are looming large on the horizon.
About a month later, another exciting arrival made its way to our doorstep — the very first skeins of Ranch 02: Forbes, fresh from the dye house! This yarn is particularly near and dear to my heart, and I was hoping to commemorate it in my closet in some way. When I pulled out those first skeins of the colorway Tobacco, images of a big cozy Ivon cardigan flashed into view and took up residence in my head. A week later, I cast on.
Hello Chris, thank you for your question! For his version, Jared used 4mm/US 6 needles for the hem and sleeve cuff ribbing, and 5.5mm/US 9 needles for the rest of the sweater. Please feel free to reach back out to firstname.lastname@example.org with any further questions!

I have just bought the icon pattern. I’m actually going to be knitting it for myself. I believe I will use 1×1 ribbing myself. Did you use 4.00 mm for the ribbing than 4.50mm for the body? I’m so glad brooklyn tweed have amazing men’s patterns

I’m following Jared’s modifications. Love the back neck darts. I have a question regarding the sleeve modification. You stated that you moved the sleeve “increases” to the public-facing side of the sleeve rather than at the underarm. I have cast on and knitted the ribbing with the number of stitches at the end of the joining round, as you suggest. For a small that is 86 stitches plus one increase I plan on the first stockinette stitch row. The pattern seems to proceed with those 87 stitches until shaping the cap when decreases begin. Could you possibly have meant placing the “decreases” on the public-facing of the sleeve? Within Veronik Avery’s pattern, I do not see any increases in the sleeve.
