Mimico Cardigan Knitting Pattern
Mimico Cardigan Pattern (by Tara-Lynn Morrison) via The Gilliangladrag LYS Ravelry Store.
A minimalist cardigan with a ribbed neck, a shaped, cropped body ending with ribbing and standout balloon sleeves. Gorgeous!!! A simple silhouette - also customisable - and a warm super chunky cardigan! :-) This cardigan is knitted in the easy top-down raglan style using circular needles for a seamless simple construction. The knitting pattern uses XS/S, M/L, L/XL, XXL measurements as a guide only and can be adjusted for custom fit.
The pattern also uses straight forward language to guide you to choose to increase or not for instance, also to try on as you go along if you do choose to create your own custom fit. Perfect for our Hand Dyed Gilliangladrag Super Chunky, Malabrigo Rasta yarn or our Mrs Moon Super Chunky Yarn or our Rico Essentials Super Chunky Yarn. (All budgets covered!) You need to know how to knit, purl, increase and pick up stitches.
