Novice Cardigan Sweater with Suzanne



The Novice Cardigan – Chunky Edition is worked from the top down. This means that you begin by working the ribbed neck edge, then you work the yoke, then the body and finally the sleeves. The cardigan is worked in stockinette stitch, while the edges are worked in rib. The Novice Cardigan – Chunky Edition has a round yoke, which is shaped by working 4 sets of increases evenly distributed along the yoke.

Size Guide and Measurements
Please note that knitting to the correct gauge is essential to end up with a garment that has the measurements given in the pattern.
The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL are designed to fit an approximate bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 (130-140) 140-150 cm [31½-33½ (33½-35½) 35½-37½ (37½-39½) 39½-43¼ (43¼-47¼) 47¼-51¼ (51¼-55) 55-59 inches]. The Novice Cardigan – Chunky Edition is designed to have approx. 15 cm [6 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be approx. 15 cm [6 inches] larger in circumference than your body.
This means that if you, for example, measure 88 cm [34¾ inches] around your bust or widest upper body part (measure yourself around your bust, or your widest point, using a measuring tape), you should knit a size S which has a circumference of 103 cm [40½ inches]. This will give you 15 cm [5¾ inches] of positive ease.
