A beautiful chunky knitted cardigan with cable knit balloon sleeves that you’ll fall in love with!

This cardigan knitting pattern was designed in conjunction with our range of  British Wool, but it can be knit in our super chunky merino too, and looks divine.

This cardigan was made with crisp Autumn mornings and cosy winter evenings in mind, it’s a soft and slouchy knit that you’ll be able to style easily. The pattern is suitable for advanced knitters and uses cable techniques as well as pick up and knit. You can add a belt, pockets and/or buttons to create a cardigan that suits you.
