Granton

Cosy long cardigan with pockets

The snuggliest cardigan ever AND it has pockets. The perfect throw on over any outfit and look pulled together cardigan — we wont judge if that outfit is your pjs. Gender and size inclusive with 12 sizes between 34 and 72"

Granton, Wardie’s older sibling, uses a thicker yarn, and has an easier buttonband more suited to the gauge. Granton is a classic long line cardigan with a deep v-neck and cosy pockets.

The back and front are worked separately from the bottom up, which gives structure and allows two layers to be worked on the fronts for the neatly constructed pockets. The wide, relaxed-fit shoulders use an extended version of English tailoring, with all of the shaping at the back. The style is somewhere between a set-in and dropped shoulder with very shallow sleeve caps. The sleeves are worked flat, from the top down, on stitches picked up around the armhole. The ribbed buttonband is worked by picking up stitches around the fronts.

After blocking flat the side and sleeve seams are joined with one long seam. If you find seaming intimidating Granton is a gentle introduction to two versions of mattress stitch: joining two vertical edges for the side seams and a horizontal to vertical edge for the shoulders.
