Chevron Cardigan – Project Kit


This stylish round-necked, slanted pattern ladies’ cardigan kit, made in doubleknit Shetland yarn, is available in three sizes. It has a loose, “blouson” effect, and a striking moss stitch yoke. We love the chevron pattern, which is on both front, back and sleeves.

It can be knitted to finish just on the hips (36cm, 14”) or a longer jacket version (43cm, 17”). If you would like to knit the jacket version, please contact us to order the extra yarn. The welts and cuffs are in rib and the front bands are in lie-flat moss stitch.

Remember this could either work as a top or knit up looser to wear with something underneath, but the neck is quite wide to accommodate collars, etc.

Your kit will arrive in one of our cotton tote bags, and contain:

Size 10-12      5 – 100g skeins of Pure Shetland DK Coffee Range

Size 14-16      6 – 100g skeins of Pure Shetland DK Coffee Range

Size 18-20     7 – 100g skeins of Pure Shetland DK Coffee Range

Choose from any of our lovely coffee-inspired undyed shades. Our sample in the photos is the longer jacket version and knitted from our Shetland/BFL DK on cone, so if you would prefer this, you can order yarn on cone through the link above. Just let us know it is for the Chevron Cardigan in the order notes, and we will include a copy of the pattern with your order.

Chevron cardigan

Just started to make this cardigan. I love the style and pattern. The yarn is easy to make up and is soft to touch. I look forward to finishing the cardigan.
