PetiteKnit - April Cardigan


PetiteKnit Knitting Pattern - April Cardigan

Top-Down Knitting | Ladies Sizes XS - 5XL

The April Cardigan has a V-neckline and is worked from the top down. The first part of the yoke is worked with shoulder increases on both RS and WS rows. The next part is worked with sleeve increases and the final part with classic raglan increases. At the same time, increases are worked along the front edges to shape the V-neckline. The sleeves are worked in the round on double-pointed needles or on a circular needle using the Magic Loop technique. At the end, stitches are picked up and knitted along the fronts, shoulders and back of neck, and a ribbed front edge with buttonholes is worked. Begin by working a swatch to determine which needle size you need to achieve the correct gauge.
