Scribble Cardigan - Knitting Pattern

Scribble Cardigan - Knitting Pattern

  • The Scribble Cardigan is the perfect project if your looking to try something new. Knitted using two different needle sizes, the open and airy stitch has contrasting vertical stripes of structure and open webs. It's designed with a relaxed drop shoulder and super cropped shape, perfect for layering. 


    The Scribble Cardigan is knitted flat in three pieces, the body and two sleeves. It's knitted in an all over open stitch with slip stitches keeping the front edges neat.


    This pattern provides easy to follow detailed instructions using the following techniques: 

    Cable cast on, knit, purl, skipping stitches, purl over, cast off, slip stitch, increasing and invisible seaming.

    Skill Level: Intermediate. 


    Sizing: 8 sizes (XS-4X) see size guide. Alice wears size 2 (S).
