Product Description

Pattern Notes:  This rustic cardigan was inspired by a Japanese Haori; they are loose and comfortable to wear, hang a little long on the body with wide sleeves and a deep collar. I took the things I liked about Haoris add remixed them to suit the modern wardrobe. It is easy to wear and super cozy!

I chose to add contiguous pockets to keep my hands warm, but the cardigan can be made without the pockets if preferred. The yardage estimates given assume pockets; if you don’t want pockets, you can get away with a bit less yardage.

Sizes:  2XS (XS, S, M) (L, XL, 2XL, 3XL) to fit an actual bust measurements of:

Size Bust inch/cm Size Bust inch/cm
2XS 28” – 30”/ 71 – 76 cm L 38” – 41”/ 95 – 104 cm
XS 31” – 32”/ 77 – 81 cm XL 42” – 45”/ 105 – 114 cm
S 33” – 34”/ 82 – 86 cm 2XL 46” – 49”/ 115 – 124 cm
M 35” – 37” /87 – 94 cm 3XL 50” – 53”/ 125 cm – 135 cm

This cardigan is designed with a bit of positive ease. See the blocking schematic for more details on the sizes. If you would like a snugger fit, bump down a size.

Yarn:  850 (950, 1100, 1250) (1450, 1650, 1900, 2150) yards/775 (875, 1000, 1150) (1325, 1500, 1750, 2000) meters of worsted weight yarn. Sample shown in Juniper Moon Sabine colorway 09.

Note: At the neck edging, you will need to be able to strand 2 pieces of yarn together for a double thickness. If you have a skein that cannot be pulled from 2 ends simultaneously, you will need to wind about 5% of the total required yardage to a separate ball so you can access 2 strands at the same time.

Needles:  Size US 8/5 mm circular needle with a long (40”/100 cm) cable and double-point needles (optional, if preferred to work in the round), or size needed to obtain gauge.

Gauge:  14 stitches x 26 rows = 4”/10 cm square in Stockinette stitch.

Notions:  1 small stitch holder, waste yarn, 5 split-ring/locking stitch markers, blocking mat, wires, t-pins, and 2 – 5 medium-sized (about 15 mm diameter) buttons.

Techniques:  Knitting in the round, short rows, provisional casting on, and the Contiguous Pocket Method (https://youtu.be/PMmnYjKSBbQ – optional).
