PATTERN | NIMA CARDIGAN
Designed by Pascuali filati naturali
Skill level: Intermediate
Measurement/Size: S/M (L/XL, XXL/XXXL)
Cosy cardigan with a very special feel, made of a light cotton, linen, nettle blend.
Nima cardigan with three-quarter sleeves and extra wide front parts whose outer tips fall into a loose collar, is knitted seamlessly in rows from top to bottom. You start knitting with a provisional cast on for the shoulders, then the back part and the front parts are knitted down to the underarms. The parts are then joined to be finished as one. The cardigan is first worked in double moss stitch, followed by a checkerboard pattern which is staggered at the front parts. The sleeves are knitted seamlessly in rounds.
The sizes S (M, L, XL, XXL, XXXL) are designed to fit a chest circumference of 32 (35, 39, 42, 47, 52)"
The cardigan has a casual fit and should be worn with a positive ease of 3.5 to 5.5" (9 to 14 cm).
Example: If your bust circumference is 35" (90 cm), you choose to knit in size S/M to get a relaxed fitting cardigan with a positive ease of some 4" (10 cm).
