Quickie Cardie Jacket
Add to Cart
Pattern by Haley Waxberg
This sweater jacket is made as simply as possible for instant gratification and high satisfaction! The yarn is a very thick and lofty wool blend. It is knit in one piece starting from the middle of the back using a nifty and easy technique called a provisional cast on. The only finishing is seaming the sides and picking up the stitches for the collar, which are both a piece of cake with this very forgiving multi-colored yarn. The arms are picked up from the body and worked down in the round on circular needles, so you not only don’t have to seam them but you can make the sleeves exactly the right length for you! If you don’t want to do any seaming we also offer you alternate instructions for a 3 needle bind off. Close the jacket with a brooch, or a sweater stick.
Estelle Designs only distributes yarns in Canada and
unfortunately I haven’t yet identified an American distributor of the same
yarn. If you would like to purchase some Woolly Bully contact me at info@knitomatic.com
