This boho cardigan is a perfect pattern for beginner knitters to use with our Big Cotton recycled yarn.

This simple cotton cardigan is such a good introduction to knitting with our recycled yarn – and also for beginner knitters to practice the basics of knitting.

The boho cardigan is knit in moss stitch, which is created by alternating knit & purl stitches, making a really lovely texture. The panels of the cardigan are simple to knit and can be made as long or as cropped as you prefer. Once made, the cardigan is a great staple from Spring right through to Autumn.

Style with jeans and a tee or over a summer dress – or go super long and use as a beach cardigan. The pattern covers sizes 6-28 and it does have a gentle draped fit, but if you’d like it really slouchy then please do size up. And if you do knit it in our super soft cotton yarn it is fully machine washable too.

Size when made

Small (UK size 6-10): 65cm wide

Medium (UK size 12-16): 76cm wide

Large (UK size 18-22): 92cm wide

X Large (UK size 24-28): 104cm wide

Length is up to you – we suggest 50cm long for cropped or 65cm long for hip length or go even longer if you prefer!
