Champagne Cardigan Yarn Kit

The Champagne Cardigan by Petiteknit has been on my to do list since it was released. It is a beautiful oversized raglan deep V-neck cardigan. It has short rows on the back to create a higher neck and the button plackets are worked in double knitting with buttonholes along the right side.

The Champagne Cardigan is knitted holding one strand of a DK/8ply with a kidsilk mohair laceweight/2ply together. I think the Kokon Yarn in both weights in the colour Moon would look brilliant for this Cardigan......so much so I have calculated yarn requirements for each size and have added these to my online store.

Size guide
The Champagne Cardigan has an oversize fit and is designed to have approx. 28 cm [11 inches] of positive ease, meaning it is designed to be 28 cm [11 inches] larger in circumference than your bust measurement. The sizes XS (S) M (L) XL (2XL) 3XL (4XL) 5XL are designed to fit a bust circumference of 80-85 (85-90) 90-95 (95-100) 100-110 (110-120) 120-130 cm (130-140) 140-150 cm [31½-33½ (33½-35½) 35½-37½ (37½-39½) 39½-43¼ (43¼-47¼) 47¼-51¼ (51¼-55) 55-59 inches].

The measurements for the finished garment can be found on the front page of the pattern. Before beginning your project, measure yourself to determine which size to knit. For example, if you measure 106 cm [41¾ inches] around your bust (or around the widest part of your upper body) you should knit a size XL. A size XL sweater has a bust circumference of 134 cm [52¾ inches] which in the given example would give you 28 cm [11 inches] of positive ease.
