Color Your World Cardigan | Free Knitting Pattern

Perfect for cool-weather comfort, a wonderful cardigan pattern by Andrea Yetman♥

This cardigan is knit seamless from the bottom up to the point of separating for the sleeves where the front pieces and back are then knit flat. The shoulder stitches are binded off using the 3 Needle Bind Off and stitches are picked up for the sleeve and knit in the round. The drop shoulder style has very little shaping making it an ideal knit for a beginner. This cardigan is meant to be worn with 10 – 12 inches of positive ease. There are 6 colors used for the stripes, which change every 12 rows. Feel free to play with the stripes making them different widths and using as many different colors as you like!

Thanks for the pattern, I liked it immediately because it is a garment that can be worn on many occasions: it is practical, it gives a nice touch of color, it is easy to make, it is wearable with different types of clothing in short, it is a very versatile cardigan and comfortable. I will realize it soon.
