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.

    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

    *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.
