A perfect pattern for beginner knitters, this super cosy cardigan is quick to knit and oh so glorious to wear!

Knit back and forth in panels, you’ll use mainly knit stitch to create a garter stitch finish and finish with rib stitch and a little bit of shaping on the sleeves to make them super slouchy. The super chunky merino means that the cardigan is squishy and soft, is easy to style and is so comfortable to wear.

The pattern covers sizes UK 4-30 with a comfortable fit and knit to a length that suits you. A perfect cardigan for every season, we are loving it here in the shop and wanting one in every colour…
