My design ideas and advice: This cardigan was a request from a knitter who pops into my studio, they loved the Higgins Cardigan and wanted an adult version, so ta-dah! here it is!
The Bailey Cardigan uses my favourite stitch, the garter stitch. It’s simplicity is it’s beauty.
Knitted in aran weight yarn it is perfect for beginners and a “my first cardigan” project. While for experienced knitters it is a great mindless project, for those moments of just sitting back and relaxing with the knitting.
It is knitted in pieces from the bottom up.
