Twiggy Cardigan

This simple raglan cardigan is knit from the top down. Designed with negative ease to fit close to the body and minimize bulk. Long roomy sleeves and generous length make this a very comfy cardigan. Features a funnel neck and chunky garter stitch cuffs and hem. Offered in a wide range of sizes and written in a Fill-in-the-Blank style format for simplicity and greater readability. Super chunky yarn makes this a very fast knit and with zero waist or sleeve shaping this design could not be simpler and lends itself to endless modification. This is a very fun knit and certainly provides the most instant gratification you'll find from a full sized sweater.
