This knitting pattern is the perfect quick knit and the finished item makes the most beautiful gift.

Using knit stitch with a gentle raglan seam shaping the sleeves, this cardigan pattern covers sizes UK 4-28. It fits true to size, so we suggest sizing up if you’d like it as a slouchier fit. Being knit on circular needles, it means there is the option of no sewing up at all (unless you’d prefer to knit the sleeves flat and sew up at the end.)

An intermediate pattern, this design starts from the ribbed collar at the top and increases down with a gentle raglan style seam before splitting for the sleeves and knitting the length of the body. The sleeves are a lovely balloon style with a short ribbed cuff.

The measurements below show the width but you can make it as long or as short as you like. We like a cropped bomber style personally, but this cardigan will lend itself to a slouchier longer length too.
