Product description

Knit up a smoking jacket-style cardigan in Quarry for a plush and cozy outer layer this autumn. The overall fabric of moss stitch creates gentle texture that shows off Quarry’s flecks and striations, and a subtle A-line shape with raglan shoulders makes Tamarack easy to wear. Choose between a short ribbed band for the fronts or a shawl collar band shaped with short rows. Optional patch pockets and a belt secured with i-cord complete the look.

  • Pattern materials

    YARDAGE

    • 1340 (1480, 1690, 1845, 2065, 2220) yards of chunky weight yarn


    YARN

  • Pattern specs

    CONSTRUCTION

    • The body is worked flat from the bottom up on a circular needle to accommodate the large number of stitches. The sleeves are worked circularly from the bottom up. The sleeves and body are then joined and the yoke is worked flat in one piece.


    GAUGE

    • 14 stitches & 22 rows = 4″ in Moss Stitch with Size A needle(s), after blocking


    Correct length of the one-piece yoke is dependent upon achieving the stated row gauge.


    NEEDLES

    Size A (for Main Fabric)

    • One 32″ circular needle and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs)* in size needed to obtain gauge listed
    • Suggested Size: 6½ mm (US 10½)


    Size B (for Ribbing)

    • One each 32″ and 47″ circular needles and one set of DPNs* three sizes smaller than Size A
    • Suggested Size: 5 mm (US 8)


    Size C (optional; for Tubular Cast On only)

    • One 32″ circular needle and one set of DPNs* one size smaller than Size B
    • Suggested Size: 4½ mm (US 7)


    *32″ circular needle can be used instead of DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round (e.g. Sleeves).


    Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
