A simple top down circular yoke cardigan.

SIZES 30-32, 34-36, 38-40, 42-44, 46-48 ins,
76-81, 86-91, 96-101, 106-111, 116-121 cms

Actual size 35, 39, 44, 48 53 ins, 88, 99, 111, 121, 134 cms

I used my own handspun singles from some 70% Superfine Baby Alpaca 30% Blue Faced Leicester Top which I dyed myself. I got approximately 8-10wpi and used 360 metres for the 38-40 size

This pattern is knitted with a looser than normal tension for the thickness of yarn.

Pretty leaves decorate the yoke and a fast growing twisted drop stitch is used for the sleeves and skirt of the cardigan.

There are two versions, one is straight down and the other has a little shaping using some under-the-bust decreases and smaller needles to fit more to your curves.

The design shown is the more fitted version

Included are instructions for a sleeveless version as well as 3/4 length sleeves. The length of the body and sleeves are easily adjustable.

The pattern is an 8 page pdf file with clear instructions and notes throughout.
