As with many of the patterns in the Rowan Denim Collection, the Leith Guernsey cardigan is designed and sized for both men and women. The Guernsey patterning along with the Rowan Original Denim give this sweater a rustic yet classic style. The sweater is knit from the bottom up working the back and front pieces separately, and the simple cable and pattern stitches are charted. Sized from XXS to 2XL with finished measurements of 39 (42, 44, 46, 48, 50, 52, 55)". Machine wash and tumble dry low, closely following the instructions in the pattern book.
Rowan Original Denim is designed to shrink in length and the designs in this booklet account for this shrinkage. Substituting a different yarn is not recommended.
The kit includes the pattern book and the yarn. For this project you will also need:
- needles in size US 6 and 3 (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
- cable needle
- 5 buttons
