Knitting pattern for Balloon cardigan designed by PetiteKnit.
Balloon cardigan is a very hot cardigan right now, and extremely popular. It is a knitted cardigan with big balloon shaped sleeves at the wrist. The cardigan is knitted from the top down. In front the cardigan is closed with large buttons. The Balloon cardigan has a short body, which looks great with pants or skirts with a high waist line.
We made two different yarn kits for this cute cardigan. One, in our soft and sustainable yarn Önling No 1, made of merino wool and angora. And one, in Isagers Alpaca 2 and Silk Mohair. The yarn kits are available in related products below.
