HANDMADE state of mind



This cardigan is knitted seamlessly in a top-down raglan technique  with a 1 x 1 rib stitch.  It makes it easy to try it on along the way, so you can customize it to fit your body and end up with the perfect sleeve and body length for you. Slightly oversized with feminine silhouette.

The body is knitted flat, while the sleeves are knitted in the round. You begin by knitting the yoke at the same time making a raglan increase until the project is divided between the body and the sleeves. As of this point each part of the project is knitted separately. The body is finished with a double-knitted edge band using a seamless technique.  Sleeves have a decorative patter that is achieved by symmetrical increase and decrease of stitches. 

This cardigan is  designed to have approx. 28 cm [11 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 28 cm [11 inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement.

Available sizes:   S ( M ) L 

The sizes S ( M ) L are designed to fit approx. bust circumference of  80-88 (88-96) 96-104 cm [ 31-35 (35-38) 38-41 in ]

Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size will fit you the best. For example, if you measure 90 cm [35½ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part on your upper body) you should knit a size M. A size M sweater has a bust circumference of 124 cm [48.75 inches] which in the given example would give you  34cm [13.5 inches] of positive ease.

Bust circumference:  116 ( 124 ) 130 cm  [ 45 ( 48.75 ) 52.75 in ] 

Length: measured mid-back excluding edge band  75 ( 80 ) 85 cm [  29.5 ( 31.5 ) 33.5 in ]
