Feature Pattern of the Week - Gramps

Gramps by Tin Can Knits,
samples in Madelinetosh Vintage

It’s the knit cardigan the entire family can wear! Gramps by Tin Can Knits includes sizes from newborn to 4XL. This easy to understand pattern is a seamless design, knit from the neck down. After the body & arms are complete, the button band & collar are worked. The cute (and useful) pockets & elbow patches are added last.
