For the last few months I’ve been knitting and crocheting up a storm. My main focus lately has been on big cozy beginner friendly blanket cardigans. I’m really fascinated by all the different ways you can knit a rectangle or square into a sweater. Since I love to knit while I watch T.V. in the evening, I don’t like to work on patterns that require me to do a lot of counting, measuring, or increasing/decreasing stitches.

I haven’t forgotten about my crocheting friends either! I have a crochet version of this blanket cardigan coming out soon in the next few days!

Materials:

US Size 9 needles

Worsted weight yarn (approx. 1100-1300 yds)

Yarn Needle

Notes:

One size fits most. For smaller or larger sizes, cast on a multiple of 2 + 1 stitches for the pattern.

Pin for Later!

Begin Pattern:

Co. 177 sts.

  1. K
  2. K
  3. P1, *K1, P1 rep from * to end
  4. K1, *P1, K1 rep from * to end

Repeat rows 1-4 47 times, then knit 2 rows. Bind off and cut yarn.

Assembly:

Lay flat, and fold 4 corners toward center. Seam 25 stitches from center, leaving openings for arms.

Pin for Later!

      Hi Amanda, as shown in the photo, you fold the corners towards each other, and stitch from the middle, halfway to the other end.

        There looks like a seam up the back? is this made in 2 parts and stitched together before you sew the arms?

          It’s actually not necessary to do 2 parts, the pattern is written to be knitted in one piece.
