Flattering raglan cardigan, with fitted shaping at front and back, ballet neckline and elbow length sleeves. The back features an eyelet panel which laces up with ribbon. The lace neckband is worked first, then stitches are picked up and the cardigan is knit from the top down in one piece. Button bands with facings and a picot hem are knit in. There are no seams, the only sewing involved is darning in the yarn ends and whipstitching up the hems and facings. The top down construction means the cardigan can be tried on while in progress and the fit can be adjusted if necessary.

Sizes: Approximate finished garment measurements, intended to be worn with 2 inches of ease at bust.
Bust: 32 [34, 36, 38, 40] inches.
81.5 [86.5, 91.5, 96.5, 101.5] cm
Waist: 25 [26.5, 28, 29.5, 31] inches.
63.5 [67.5, 71, 75, 79] cm
Centre back length : 22.1 [22.4, 22.7, 23, 23.3] inches / 56 [57, 58, 58.5, 59] cm

Note: larger sizes are coming soonish. I’m having them tested out first, but please don’t think I’ve forgotten you. If you buy the pattern now I will send you the file of the larger sizes when it’s ready. If you want to knit a larger size I’m sorry but you’ll have to wait a little longer.

Click on the button to buy now via paypal for ?3.50 and instantly download the pattern.

Let me know if there are any problems.

Update:here is the yarn info for those who asked,

Approx 780 [830, 880, 930, 980] yards of double knitting or light worsted weight yarn. I recommend using a smooth yarn in either a wool or wool and cotton blend. I used Rowan Wool Cotton.
OR
Approx 780 [830, 880, 930, 980] yards of MC,
and
Approx 160 [180, 200, 220, 240] yards of CC.

and because I know it will come up I know I used shade 960 for the green. I’ll post the pinkish shade number as soon as I find a ball band kicking around.

Pay what you can pattern pricing
Pay what you can pattern pricing

At the same time, it’s totally fair to worry that rising pattern prices will price people out.
