Knitting pattern for Charlie, a classic, striped cardigan knitted in our soft Önling No 2, made of 100% merino wool and sustainably produced in Italy. With Charlie you will get a delicately soft cardigan that you can wear with most of your wardrobe. Knit it in stripes or in a single color – the possibilities are endless with this classic.
The cardigan has been designed with ¾ length sleeves, but the pattern also describes how to knit long sleeves. The cardigan is oversized at the chest, or if you prefer it, you can choose to knit a size smaller than you usually wear. It has a slight A-shape, that you can either choose to knit or leave out.

The cardigan is worked in rows from the top down. Cast on stitches using a temporary crochet cast-on, so the size of the neckline can be adjusted subsequently. Short rows are worked across the shoulder and the neckline at the beginning to give a higher neckline in the back. The yoke is worked with increases to create armholes. Hereafter the work is divided and both sleeves and body are worked separately.
