Wrap yourself up on a chilly day in the bestselling Calligraphy cardigan. It has been a top selling Knitbot pattern since 2011. It’s truly a classic design for the modern knitter, with a fitted body knit in dk weight yarn, a wide collar, and oversized buttons. The book Home & Away: Knits for Everyday Adventures includes the revised/updated version with options for seamless, top down construction or seamed and pieced construction. For more on why you might choose one construction method over the other, see page 40 of Home & Away! In both versions, the bands are picked up and knitted last.
If you are in-between sizes, please choose the larger size. Hannah recommends "When choosing your size it is always a good idea to check your actual body measurements against all the measurements given in the pattern schematic."
GIFT KIT includes the book Home & Away: Knits for Everyday Adventures & selected yarn. Buttons not included. For yarn winding services, click here. PRE-ORDERS now available.
