Side shaping and a compound raglan yoke create a flattering fit in this popular design, infamous since a group of friends in America each made one to wear to Rhinebeck and were subsequently featured on Ravelry’s home page in glorious technicolour! (See the ravelry pattern page for photos.)

The project involves steeking, allowing the whole cardigan to be knitted in the round from the right side. This steek is fully instructed in the pattern, which includes illustrated tutorials for my favourite steek reinforcement method as well as for the increase methods used for the shaping.

Size:

The pattern is written in 14 sizes, to fit 32 to 58 inch chests, with 5 to 7.5cm/2 to 3 inches of positive ease.
