DOUGLAS CARDI
by Andrea Mowry

The Douglas Cardi is a grandpa-style cardigan complete with stripes, big pockets, and a relaxed fit. Named for my father, who is now fondly known as Grandpa Doug to my kiddos, it reminds me of when I spruced up my school uniform with my own grandpa’s golfing cardigan when I was in middle school. I love to amp up my cozy with this sweater no matter the outfit! This sweater is knit from the bottom up with afterthought pockets and a picked up button band.

Sizing: 1 (2, 3, 4, 5)(6, 7, 8, 9)
Finished bust circumference: 46 (50, 54, 56, 60)(62, 66, 68, 72)”
117 (127, 137, 142, 152.5)(157.5, 167.5, 172.5, 183) cm

Recommended ease is positive 16-10”/40.5 -25.5 cm; sample is shown in Size 2 on a 35”/89 cm bust with 15”/38 cm positive ease.
  

Sample shown is knit in a different yarn. We have paired the Douglas Cardi with Lore from The Fibre Co. because they are a beautiful complement to one another.
