Breac Cardigan Pattern

This fast, cosy cardigan will knit up in no time, making it perfect for a first cardigan. Knit in one piece from the top down with raglan shoulder shaping, no seaming means that when you finish, knitting all you need to do is weave your ends in and sew your button in place.

When you purchase this pattern, you will get two patterns; one is for the super chunky version, and the second is for the chunky version.

If this is your first cardigan, you can get a full workshop (which includes the pattern) here. Super Chunky Yarn kits can be found here, and Chunky Yarn kits can be found here.
