When we shared last week’s blog post with Amy, she let us in on the exciting news that a Cardigan version of her Felix sweater was in the works. And now here it is!
This delightfully cropped cardigan could become everyone’s favorite winter sweater this season! It looks like the perfect layering piece to go over everything you love to wear.
The cardigan version is written to be worked top-down, back and forth in rows. The neck is shaped with short rows, the body and sleeves are divided after the yoke shaping. The body is continued by working back and forth in rows, the sleeves are worked in the round. The body of the cardigan is 1” longer then that of the Felix Pullover – please note the body can be made any length but plan to purchase more yarn.
The pattern includes sizing from 39 (43 ½, 48, 52 ½, 57)” around chest at underarm. It is shown above in size 43 1/3, worn with 7” of positive ease. Selecting the correct amount of ease is a very personal, please choose a size based on your own preferences, Amy recommends a range between 2 to 10” of ease for this garment.
We think that it is darling, and will knit up in a flash with our Mountain Mohair. The gauge is meant to be light and airy so you’ll be working with a Worsted or Aran weight yarn with larger needles (Larisa used a US 10.5). Amy’s cardigan is shown in our Alpenglo color and her pattern calls for 5 (6, 7, 8, 8) skeins.
For one week, Amy has generously made it possible for you to have both patterns for the price of one, so you can make your decision about which to knit later, or perhaps even make both!
