Chloe Cardigan Knitting Pattern
A ribbed drape collar shrug
“Light weight but heavy with personality, pretty micro stitches in a double knit yarn give the illusion of a woven fabric and make the cardigan drape elegantly!”
- Jo Storie

Needles: One pair each of 3.25mm (US 3) and 3.75mm (US 5) straight needles.

A note on size:
This is a very generous fit cardigan, depending on which yarn you use will affect the drape. If you need some advise on which size or yarn to choose send as a message and we'l try to help you out. Note the finished chest includes the sleeves, and is a cuff to cuff measurement.
