Really Ridgy is a seamless yoke cardigan knit from top to bottom meant to be worn with 4 – 6 inches of positive ease. This is the ultimate beginner friendly cardigan! The Ridgy pattern is a combination of knit rows and purl rows. The sleeves are knit without any decreases for a bell sleeve. When knitting the short rows for the collar, there is no need to pick up the wraps as they are well hidden in Garter Stitch. To see a tutorial on how to make the perfect buttonholes click HERE.
