Knitting Pattern in French for a Wrap Cardigan with a romantic lace border, balloon sleeves and a romantic bow to close the front parts in sizes XS | S | M (L | XL | 2XL) 3XL | 4XL | 5XL.


The wrap cardigan is worked top down in stockinette stitch back and forth in rows. The yoke is shaped with raglan increases and additional increases for the round neck at the back part and the V neck at the front parts. To shape the round neck, both shoulder parts are first worked separately and then joined at the round neck. This method makes the design reversible: the cardigan can be worn with the V neck at the front or at the back.
When the yoke is finished, the sleeves are separated from the body and the body is finished in stockinette stitch in rows with increases at the beginning and the end of every right side row to shape the overlapping front parts. The body will be finished with a hem in 1x1 ribbed pattern. Then, stitches for the sleeves are picked up and the sleeves are worked in stockinette stitch in the round. Before working the cuffs in 1x1 ribbing, there are a bunch of decreases to create a balloon-like shape. Afterwards, the cardigan is finished as follows: First, the straps for the bow are worked in 1x1 ribbing. Then, the neckline is finished with an applied i-cord-edging. Last, but not least, the lace border is worked separately and then sewn onto the neckline of the cardigan using the mattress stitch.

The construction, fit and the details like the lace border and the bow of the wrap cardigan, create a very feminine, romantic and festive look, which is suitable for a variety of occasions. The relatively short length makes the wrap cardigan perfect for high waisted trousers, skirts or to wear it with dresses on late summer evenings. The fit is slightly loose, but you are welcome to adapt the fit by choosing the size which will be a little bit tighter or looser around your bust. Additionally, the wrap design provides a certain range of how tight or loose the wrap cardigan can be worn.

Knitting Tension:
10x10 cm = 17 sts x 26 rs in stockinette stitch with 2 strands of yarn held together on 5 mm knitting needles (wet blocked)
Please Note: The original yarn is a superwash yarn – which means, that it will stretch a lot after washing and blocking. You might even have a different row count on your swatch in comparison to the finished garment, as the garment will grow more than the little swatch due to its weight. If you have a looser knitting tension (especially when purling stitches), I recommend to go down (half) a needle size – but make sure that the stitch count is still working out! – OR that you block the garment while knitting before you try it on to see if you have already achieved your desired length.
