Hancock celebrates the comfort of garter stitch, with an extra-wide knitted collar. Fingering weight yarn knitted at a looser gauge contribute to a lightweight garment. The pictured sweater was knitted seamless from the top down. If you prefer seamed knits, a second set of instructions is included to knit the cardigan in pieces. If you are in-between sizes, I suggest sizing down for an open cardigan like this one. When choosing your size it’s always a good idea to check your actual body measurements against all the measurements given in the pattern schematic. This design is knitted at a loose gauge. To avoid ladders between the joins of double-pointed needles, you may want to use either Magic Loop or the two circular needle method to knit in the round.
