Product description

“I was inspired to design this cardigan while experimenting with different reversible cable patterns. I wanted to design a light, airy everyday cardigan that would go with everything. The challenge with a piece like this is that wearable often equals ordinary. When I stumbled across this sweet and simple reversible cable, I knew I had found just the thing to bring my design from ordinary to interesting. The addition of reverse stockinette stripes at the hems and the shoulders brings further visual interest by adding a bit of texture and rhythm. These details, along with thoughtfully placed shaping rows, help to hold the knitter’s attention and make this a joy to knit.” – Alexis Winslow

  • Pattern Updates

    10 January 2013: Version 3.2

    Pages 5 and 6, the LEFT FRONT and RIGHT FRONT row counts (before “Stripe Detail and Collar Shaping Row”) have been corrected to read:

    28 (28, 34, 34, 40, 40, 46) rows have been worked in this section.

    Pages 5 and 6, “Repeat Collar Shaping Row” has been corrected to read:

    Repeat Collar Decrease Row.


    25 July 2012: Version 3.0

    This change affects size 48.75” only: 

    Under “Divide for Front and Back” section on page 4, the following number in the division row has been changed:

    …to waste yarn or a stitch holder for underarm, work 74 (82, 90, 98, 108, 116, 126) stitches for Back, work next 4 (6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 14) stitches and transfer them to waste yarn.

    Under the “BACK” Section on page 7, the first sentence has been updated to reflect this change as well:

    Rejoin yarn to 74 (82, 90, 98, 108, 116, 126) Back stitches, ready to work a RS row.


    5 July 2012: Version 2.0

    In “Right Front” and “Left Front” sections, when specific sizes are listed to work instructions individually, the pattern originally listed the sizes as: "Sizes – (36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56) only"; the sizes should instead be listed as:

    Sizes – (33¾, 37½, 41¼, 45, 48¾, 52½) only

    The “Attach Pockets” instructions in the Finishing section were accidentally omitted. The following instructions have been added:

    Position the pockets on the fronts of the cardigan, centering each pocket left to right, and aligning the bottom edge of the pocket with the bottom edge of the cardigan. Using your tapestry needle and mattress stitch, sew the sides of each pocket to the sweater. Use a running stitch to sew the bottom edge of pockets. Be careful to make sure the left and the right pockets are the same number of stitches from the center edging. Weave in all yarn ends invisibly on the WS of fabric.
