PetiteKnit Knitting Patterns Cardigans & Jackets Fluffy Knit-in-the-round Top-down Construction Two Yarns Held Together


Product Information

The Novice Cardigan – Mohair Edition is worked from the top down with  two strands of thin mohair/silk yarn held together throughout.  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 stocking stitch, while the edges are worked in rib. The Novice Cardigan – Mohair Edition has a round yoke, which is shaped by working 4 sets of increases evenly distributed along the yoke.

Nine Sizes: XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL
The sizes 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

Finished Measurements
Bust circumference:  96 (100) 105 (111) 120 (129) 140 (151) 161 cm
Length: 52 (54) 56 (58) 59 (60) 61 (62) 63 cm measured mid back

Size guide: The Novice Cardigan – Mohair Edition is designed to have approx. 10cm  of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be approx. 10cm larger in circumference than your widest upper body measurement. 

Measure yourself before beginning your project to determine which size will fit you the best. This means that if, for example, you measure 90cm 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 100cm. This will give you 10cm of positive ease.

Please note that knitting to the correct gauge is essential to end up with a garment that has the measurements given in the pattern.

Gauge: 21 stitches x 28 rows = 10 x 10cm in stocking stitch on 4mm needles with 2 strands of silk mohair held together, after blocking.

Suggested needles: Circular needles: 3.5mm 80cm, 4mm / 40 and 80 and/or 100cm needles; Double-pointed needles: 3.5mm needles, unless using the Magic loop method on the sleeves.
