A lightweight cardigan for breezy spring days, overzealous air conditioning, or autumn layering. Warm enough for the breeze but light enough for sunshine!
The fingering weight gauge takes a bit of time to knit up, but it’s worth it for this classic, wearable everyday cardigan. Knit seamlessly from the bottom up, with a fun circular yoke and twisted rib details.
Castlegar is knit seamlessly from the bottom up, with a circular yoke. The lower body is knit flat in one piece while each sleeve is knit in the round. This sweater does not have waist shaping.
There is only one length across all sizes for the body and sleeves; feel free to lengthen as needed at points given throughout the pattern.
