The Cardigan is worked in a very effective stripe
that is quite simple to work. The main colour of
the original cardigan was powder blue, and
the contrasting colours were Yellow, navy blue,
red and green. If you have lots of oddments
you could work more colours in.
To Fit a 34-inch Bust.
The original yarn used was 7 ozs. (200g) Patons
Beehive fingering 3 ply in the main colour and
3/4 oz. (22g) of each of the 4 other contrast
colours. A pair each of No. 10 (3.25mm) and 12
(2.75mm) needles. 5 buttons
TENSION: 8 sts. to the inch with pattern unstretched
will give a 34-inch bust measurement
The needles are old U.K sizes so I have included a
conversion chart to help.
The pattern comes as one easy to download and
