The Night and Day Cardigan is a fun, oversized, slouchy, 80s style knit. This pattern can be worked up in about a week and is easy/beginner level, perfect also as an introduction to intarsia knitting. The cardigan is knit up in 5 panels and is made up of two front panels, one back panel and two sleeves. All seamed together and then completed with a neckline that is knit by picking up stitches along the edge of the cardigan body. The sleeve cuffs are made extra long for you to be able to roll them up and you can make adjustments to the length/width of the body to fit your shape.
The pattern includes sizes XS to 5XL. Due to the oversized style of the cardigan, I recommend checking the measurements thoroughly before you begin and adjust the pattern to your body where needed or size down. The sample is knit in size S. If you would like to use a different weight of yarn, measurements are included. Each section of the pattern includes measurements in centimeters as well, for you to follow along as you’re knitting each piece.
The techniques you will need to know are knit, purl, 1x1 rib, knit 2 together, ssk, cast on, cast off and yarn over. However, if you are a beginner looking for a challenge, instructional photos are included throughout and videos are included at the very end of the pdf file.
