Allison Cardigan

Allison CardiganDesigned for, and named after my beautiful daughter, here is the Allison Cardigan. It’s everything she likes in a sweater – cropped, wide, boxy and in her favorite shade of yellow.

I love everything about this cardigan! It’s so versatile, dress it up or dress it down. You can wear it with a dress or with jeans. It’s also made out of one of my favourite yarns, Briggs & Little Atlantic, a bulky yarn which knits up quickly. I’ve used the Gold colourway, but they have an amazing selection to choose from.

Briggs Little Atlantic – Gold – 5 (6, 6, 6, 7, 8) skeins

Size 10 needles circs, 32”, 16”, 9” and/or dpn’s

Size 9 circular needle, 32”

Stitch markers

Buttons 6 (6, 6, 6, 7, 7)


15 sts x 22 rows = 4” stockinette on size 10 needles, or whichever size needle gives you the correct gauge.


38” (41”, 44”, 50”, 54.5”, 58.5”)

Sweater is meant to be worn with at least 4” of positive ease. Model is wearing size 38” .
