Simple Cardi is a cute, girly cardigan with tons of bubbles. It is knitted seamlessly (except pockets), top-down with set in sleeves. The body is worked from the top down. You start the cardigan at the back from the shoulder line and knit down to the armpits, then pick up sts at the shoulder line and work both fronts to the armpits, join and work in one piece. The sleeves are also knitted top-down and worked by picking up stitches at the armholes and working short rows to shape caps.
Sizes: 2 (4, 6, 8, 10, 12) years To fit chest: 21 (23, 25, 26½, 28, 30)” Size in cm: 92 (104, 116, 128, 140, 152) The cardigan is meant to be worn with a small amount of positive ease.
Gauge: 24 sts and 30 rows per 4 inches in stockinette stitch – save time by checking the gauge.
Please note that I knit loosely so you may need a different needle size to obtain the gauge.
