Honesty Cardigan knitting pattern
Honesty Cardigan has a classic shape with a deep v-neck and fitted sleeves. The twist to the classic is the reverse stocking stitch body giving the stripes a different look in a nice contrast to the classic stripes on the sleeves. The body of the stripey cardigan is worked flat and in three pieces and the sleeves are worked flat and sewn in to finish. The button band is knitted seperately and stretched slightly to attach ensuring a perfect fit. The 4 page PDF knitting pattern includes fully written instructions and schematic with measurements.
