For advanced knitters, Helen Hamann designs are notable for their combination of modern flair, classic elegance, and impeccable detailing.
This Circular Cardigan is a quick knit for experienced knitters, using 2 strands of DK weight yarn held together, for a gauge of 15 sts/4". It sports a traditional raglan shape, with fully-fashioned decreases, except that there are no fronts - these are created together with the shawl collar and back-waist band in a flattering ribbing. Finished bust measurements are 36, 40, 44”, but since the front edges of cardigan deliberately do not meet at center front, the garment can accommodate slightly smaller or larger bust sizes when worn. Uses 1952, 2196, 2440 yards of DK weight (21-23 st/4") yarn, knit two strands together.
