Harper Cardigan Pattern


This single pattern is available as a download.

I adore this cardigan. And since I published it in 2013 it’s become a firm favourite with knitters too. I’ve seen it knitted in so many different yarns and shades. There is one knitter (that I know of!) that has knitted it for herself five times and for one of her sisters three times!
It is a classic shape which is simple to knit and easy to wear. I want to wear my Harper cardigan all the time! I wear it with jeans and t-shirt or with a dress. The first one I knitted was in cotton but I love it so much that I knitted one in British Wool…I am also tempted to knit one in every colour of the rainbow to go with every single piece of clothing I have in my wardrobe!
And if you fancied a cropped version of the Harper Cardigan with short sleeves then take a little look at the Hannah Cardigan
