Waste Not, Want Not Cardigan – Knitting Pattern


Our latest glorious cardigan is a beautiful way to use up your remnants!
Our knitting patterns may not be resold or used to create products for any other business
Patterns arrive as PDF downloads via email and also saved to customer accounts. By downloading patterns within 2 weeks of purchase, customers consent to waive their right to the 14-day cooling off period and therefore will not be entitled to a refund.

This fabulous cardigan is what you’ve been waiting for…

Because of the remnant element, it means that it will be completely unique to you. We suggest 200g of remnant yarn to make a real impact, although you can knit it with just 100g if you prefer.

Add some bobbles to the main body and the sleeves, and you’ve got yourself such a striking cardigan. Perfect for all year round to add fun to any outfit.

Suitable for intermediate knitters, and made in the round so no sewing up! Perfection, and so much joy!
