The Pattern

The Acorn Cardigan is an advanced-beginner bulky weight knitting pattern. The cardigan has a positive ease of 6 inches in the bust and positive ease of an inch in the arms. The body is worked bottom-up and the sleeves are worked in the round. All pieces are seamed together and stitches are picked up for the collar. 

Design Story

The Acorn Cardigan was designed specifically for my aunt who enjoys receiving handmade garments by yours truly. I tried knitting her a cardigan designed by another blogger. Unfortunately, the fit wasn't right and my aunt and I both agreed that I should do the designing of her next best and favorite cardigan.

So, what did I do? Yes, I unraveled that whole cardigan stitch by stitch. It hurt to see each stitch disappear as I pulled the yarn but something great came out of that yarn.

The yarn used for this knit project was Lion Brand's Color Made Easy in Kombucha. It is a bulky weight yarn that works up quickly and does great in both the washer and dryer.
