This cropped chunky knit cardigan is so easy to create and it's oversized look means it's great for beginners if you've never made a garment before and are worried about sizing! It's cropped, it's chunky and it goes with everything in your wardrobe - even your PJs if you're having a duvet day :o)
This easy cardigan kit makes an ideal gift for beginners.
It includes the yarn, needles and pattern so you can get straight on with crafting your diy cardigan (and make a 15% saving on buying the materials separately!)
This is an oversize knit so size isn't important but measurements are given from XS up to 5XL (62" chest)
The finished sweater in size S/M is approximately 46cm (18inches) long
The pattern works up quickly as it is made with luxurious 100% merino super chunky wool and there is very little shaping involved.

I ordered the Carla Kit. It arrived beautifully packaged in good time. I have almost finished the knit. I have reduced the width by 6 stitches so I wait to see the outcome. The wool is gorgeous. Knits up quickly So is a satisfying project. Wood needles were stiff at first but smoothed after a few rows and now I love them. This is an easy pattern if you are a beginner. Knit and pearl and either measure or count your rows. I love the project and I feel I am going to be thrilled with my garment. Thank you KingandEye 🧶 🐑 🪡
Very pleased - high quality, thorough instructions, and fun design. Thank you!
