This cardigan combines a drapey, feminine silhouette with a surprisingly simple construction. Knit all in one piece from the bottom-up, the yoke is shaped with short rows, then finished with pleats which shape and frame the neckline. Thoughtful finishing details – like the i-cord bind-off and buttonholes – give the garment a neat, professional look.

Pattern covers bust sizes from 30 to 52 inches.

yardage: approx 1(1116) 2(1211) 3(1306), 4(1401), 5(1496), 6(1591), 7(1686) 8(1781) 9 (1876) 10 (1971), 11(2066) yards of a light sportweight/ dk yarn that knits to gauge.
The pattern includes instructions for unfamiliar techniques (applied icord; icord buttonholes; pleating; Carol Sunday’s short row method).

  1. Oh wow, this is gorgeous. I’m starting to feel like a stalker – I hope you don’t mind – I came across your blog last night in a link from Mason-Dixon Knitting and it’s such a pleasure to read a really well-written blog that I’ve been reading everything here. I will be buying this pattern as soon as I can afford the yarn! I don’t know if you have time to answer comments, but if you do, do you think it would knit up well in a wool/cotton mix?

  2. This is the perfect cardigan. I have some Drops Alpaca which would look lovely knitted in this pattern – my first cardigan! When are you planning to make it available to buy?
    Lovely work.

  3. I love “Manu”!! can you say me what color of “Shilasdair luxury DK” you’ve chosen for this cardigan? Thank you very much!!
    Muriel.

  4. Lovely! And the colour is so nice. Perfect embodiment of a perfect sweater :-)

  5. I tried to order a printed copy of Manu on line. Not sure whether it has been successful or not, no confirmation sent, the order said it was unsuccessful, yet my bank has texted me to say I have been charged two sums of 65p and one of £5 something. The order showed only dollars, even though I have an UK address. Can you please confirm my order will be sent in the post and the total amount I have been charged, many thanks. Andrea Eason.
    PS I Have walked the West Highland Way (pre 4 hip replacements,) lovely part of the world!
