This pattern is complimentary only with the purchase of 6 skiens of Brooklyn Tweed Quarry.

An open-front cardigan in Quarry with a dramatic ribbed collar adds a note of cozy chic to your wardrobe. Three quarter-length sleeves balance the volume of the ribbed lapels, which are shaped with short rows worked at the ends of the collar rather than around the neck. Exaggerated drop shoulders create a flattering curve and seam detail at the upper arm. Opt for tubular edges for a professional finish or substitute your favorite standard method for a sweater you can knit up in a flash.

Needles

Size A (for Main Fabric)
One pair of straight needles or a 32” circular needle in size needed to obtain gauge listed

Knitter’s preferred style of needle may be used for most pieces. A circular needle is required for the collar due to the large number of stitches.

Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
