PATTERN DETAILS

Construction
Sheffield is an open cardigan with slightly dolman-shaped sleeves that looks great in a variety of different fits. It’s worked from one sleeve cuff to another, in a single piece. The subtle Garter Stitch ornamentation highlights the drape of this nubby, tweedy yarn. The pattern is suitable for a beginning sweater knitter. The sizing for Sheffield is very flexible. If you prefer a closer-to-the-body look, like Naomi in the tan sample, try a size that’s 2 – 4” (5 – 10 cm) larger than your upper torso circumference. If you like things extra-generous and kimono in feel, go for a size that’s at least 12” (30.5 cm) larger than your upper torso circumference, like Naomi in the gray. Or, anything in between.
