Knitting Pattern in English for a Cardigan with a deep V neck, a double knitted button band and colourful bobbles all over body and sleeves in sizes XS | S | M (L | XL | 2XL) 3XL | 4XL.


The cardigan is worked in one piece top down with raglan increases. For the V neck, there will be additional increases after the first and before the last stitch every other row. As soon as the yoke is finished, the sleeves are separated from the body and the stitches are put to rest. The body is then worked in one piece and finished with a hem in 1x1 ribbing. Then, the stitches for the sleeves are picked up again and the sleeves are worked in stockinette stitch in the round. Before the cuffs in 1x1 ribbing, there will be worked a bunch of decreases to create a balloon-like sleeve shape. In the end, a button band in double knitting is attached along the front parts and the neckline.

The whole cardigan is covered with colourful bobbles, which are worked directly during the knitting process. The fit of the cardigan is loose and slightly oversized due to the positive ease. The sleeves are wide and tighten at the cuffs for a voluminous look. The intended length is relatively short, but of course it can be adapted individually. You then might need more or less yarn than indicated in the pattern.
