Wide Sleeved Cardigan


A large collar combined to wide sleeves make this cardigan super-cute. Our knitting pattern will help you create your own wide sleeved cardigan!


A large collar and flared sleeves bring a funky edge to our Wide Sleeved Cardigan. It’s worked in the flat, and has a dropped shoulder-line combined to a shaped sleeve. This makes it comfortable to wear, and gives it a unique look.

This wide sleeved cardigan combines ribbed hem and collar to lacey sleeves and bodice. It’s an easy project suitable for beginners and those who like to knit while watching TV. With a medium needle size, it knits up relatively quickly.

The model cardigan is knit with discontinued Nalle Colori. Nalle is a sport weight yarn, and comes in many colorways. The model cardigan is knit with self-patterning yarn, which gives it a unique coloration. Any similar yarn will do nicely for this cardigan, and using cotton with similar weight will turn this warm knit into a summer favourite. Size S takes approx 400 grams of yarn, which comes to about 1040 meters.
