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.

This pattern is also part of the book Home and Away.
