This glorious Fleckle Cardigan just oozes Granddad style…

Suitable for advanced knitters, you follow a written colourwork pattern using five colours, increasing as you go.

Using circular needles you knit back and forth, alternating between just two colours at any one time. Sizes range from 8-28 and you can knit the cardigan as cropped or as long as you like.

Finish with a simple button band and you have the option of adding buttons or leaving it open (you can always fasten using one of our popular doer-uppers!)

This cardigan is true to size, so size up for a slouchy look.
