Pattern available

Splash of Blue pattern is now available!
I’d like to thank my wonderful test knitters Mari and Aura and tech editor Joeli!

New cardi

More info about the pattern:
This long cardigan is worked in one piece from top down. It’s slightly A-shaped and features eyecatching cables and eyelet increases.

Finished Measurements
Bust circumference 34 ¼ (38 ¼, 42 ¼, 46 ¼, 50 ¼)” /
87 (97, 107.5, 117.5, 127.5) cm.
Intended to be worn with 2-4” / 5-10 cm of positive ease.

Total length of the cardigan is same in every size which is due to very long pattern repeats (8” / 20.5 cm). Because of this, the underarm to hem measurement gets progressively smaller in larger sizes. Difference in this length between smallest and largest size is 3 ½” / 9 cm.

Because of that, I have provided detailed instructions for making the cardigan one pattern repeat longer. These instructions are marked with blue color throughout the pattern.

Yarn
905 (985, 1060, 1145, 1220) yds / 825 (900, 970, 1045, 1115) m bulky yarn of your own choice that gives you the correct gauge.
Making the body longer, requires approx. 200 (220, 235, 250, 270) yds / 180 (200, 215, 230, 245) m more yarn.

Yarn used for sample is no longer available. Good substitutions would be for example:
Knit Picks Cadena; 110 yds / 101 m per 100 g skein; 70% Peruvian Highland Wool, 30% Superfine Alpaca
Hjertegarn Natur Uld; 110 yds / 101 m per 100 g skein; 100 % wool
Reynolds Lopi (aka Álafoss Lopi); 110 yds / 101 m per 100 g skein; 100 % wool

Needles & Notions
Size 10 ½ US (if you are a loose knitter) or 11 US (if you tend to knit tight) / 7 mm circular needle,
32” / 80 cm long or longer
Double pointed needles in the same sizes for sleeves (or a long circular needle for Magic Loop technique)
Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Cable needle, 4 stitch markers, tapestry needle, row counter, 5 buttons approx 1” / 2,5 cm diameter;
or 6 buttons for longer version.

Thank you!

    The cables and the blue are amazing! There are not that many patterns for older kids… I'll keep that one in mind! Congratulations for that great design!
